Surgeons from China take help of 3D Printed Models for Separating Conjoined Twins
For the first time, surgeons in China used 3D printing technology to help with surgery for separating conjoined twins. Surgeons at Fudan University Children Hospital in Shanghai used 3D printing models to help understand the anatomical structure of the body of three-month-old conjoined twin girls. The doctors sent data gathered using CT and MRI scans of the conjoined twins to a 3D printing company. The 3D printing company built 3D models of the body parts of the conjoined twins. The 3D model gave the surgeons a better idea of the anatomical structure of the body of the conjoined twins and helped the surgeons plan the surgery. Doctors performed successful surgery and separated the conjoined twins.
