3D printing to help surgeons

Posted on Updated on

 

According to Global News and Dr. Kevin Harris, a pediatric cardiologist at BC Children’s Hospital, “We’re actually able to see, feel and hold the patient’s heart, understanding the size and the relationship of different structures. The hospital unveiled the first pediatric 3D printing program of its kind in western Canada.

The 3D printers can make models of a child’s organs to help doctors with clinical planning and preparation.”
