3D printer could help British war veteran walk again

Professor Justin Cobb, from London's Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, based at Charing Cross Hospital, will be using the 3D printer to produce micron-layer precise knee joint models and patterns for titanium plates that will be used in the pioneering reconstructive surgery. This is expected to help the surgeon's more accurately plan the surgery, reconfigure the bones more quickly and avoid the need to replace the entire knee joint. The pre-surgery procedure will use the effectiveness of low radiation dose CT scanning of the anatomy of the patient's limb to capture multiple slice images of the joint and ligaments to create a personalised knee scan. This will then be built up into a SolidWorks 3D imaging model to provide an accurate visual address to the extent of the damage to the limb, which will then be transported into the Objet 3D printer using the MED 610 bio-com...
