Researchers have developed a method to 3D print liquid crystal elastomers so that they form complex structures with physical properties that match those of complex biological tissues, such as cartilage.
An anaesthesia team used 3D printing and virtual reality to produce an exact model of the airway of a 7-year-old girl in order to prepare properly for an operation to remove part of her lung.
3D printing fuels efforts to rapidly increase ventilator capacity while providing each patient on vent support with individually tailored gas pressures and pressure monitoring.
EPFL spin-off Annaida is developing a magnetic resonance system that can detect the chemistry inside the tiniest living organisms.
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.
