One of the key benefits of printing 3D models is that they enable radiologists to use advanced analysis.
This consequently helps veterinary surgeons to evaluate better treatment decisions and plan their surgeries more accurately. Additionally, 3D printed patient-specific anatomical models support members of staff during consultations with pet owners when explaining more accurately a pets’ condition.
3D printing within the veterinary sector can also be used as an educational tool for student nurses and surgeons. Especially, when explaining complex medical cases. For example, being able to hold a model and view the pathology of a disease from different angles. This can help students understand the steps involved in a surgery more clearly.
When considering complex surgeries, 3D models offer the ability to directly view and hold the relevant anatomy in your hand. This allows precise procedure methods, surgical rehearsals and avoid potential errors.
Top Benefits of 3D Printing for Vet Use:
- Plan for Procedures with Models
- Customisable Tools to use During Surgeries
- Models for Bone Replacement
- Creates Prosthetics
- Orthopedic Implants
- Overall Decreases surgery time
Not only does 3D printing aid in these areas, but it provides peace-of-mind to the owners due to the increased practice with 3D models going into procedures.
The model also provides increased diagnosis for internal issues or structural damage with the bones or vertebrae.
