3-D printed bones could function as models for patient cases, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars and helping surgeons prepare for complicated operations.
The printed bones cost around $150 and can be completed in one week. A combination of available software programs and internet resources is used to create the models of bones. It is then possible to print the bones from a 3D CT scan.
