Scientists have developed a 3D printing technique that could have future applications in diagnosing and monitoring the lungs of patients with COVID-19.
With increased medical precision, speed of service and reduced cost, 3D printing presents a unique opportunity to transform traditional healthcare and its delivery. We give key insights on an array of topics that includes 3D printing of implants and prosthetics, anatomical modeling for surgical planning and the advances of bioprinting of tissue, vessels and organs.
3D printing fuels efforts to rapidly increase ventilator capacity while providing each patient on vent support with individually tailored gas pressures and pressure monitoring.
Researchers have created a material with a unique set of properties, which could act as a replacement for human tissue in medical procedures.
Researchers demonstrated a methodology that combines the bioprinting and imaging of glioblastoma cells in a way that more closely models what happens inside the human body.
An international team of scientists have discovered a new material that can be 3D printed to create tissue-like vascular structures. In a new study, researchers have developed a way to 3D print graphene oxide with a protein which can organise into tubular structures that replicate some properties of vascular tissue.
Biomedical engineers developed a handheld 3D bioprinter that could revolutionize the way musculoskeletal surgical procedures are performed.
Scientists have improved upon the bioprinting technique they developed to engineer skeletal muscle as a potential therapy for replacing diseased or damaged muscle tissue.
For the first time, researchers managed to make intact human organs transparent. Using microscopic imaging they could revealed underlying complex structures of the see-through organs at the cellular level.
Researchers are 3D printing "groovy" tissue-engineering scaffolds with living cells to help heal injuries.
Rutgers University have devised a way to integrate microneedles with backward facing barbs, so that microneedle arrays can stay in place as long as needed.
Researchers revolutionised 4D printing by making a 3D fabricated material change its shape and back again repeatedly without electrical components.
A prototype for the first 3D-printed, sensor-operated prosthetic arm designed for toddlers under two years-old has been developed by UK engineers.
