Lifelike 3D printed backbone replicas will prepare surgeons for spinal operations

In manufacturing, 3D printing has been used to create realistic prototypes. Now  increasingly the technology is being used in medicine to create replica bone and organ structures to train surgeons. One project, led by researchers at Nottingham Trent University is 3D printing replicas of the human spine to train surgeons before they enter the operating […]
