With all the scientific and medical engineering advancements, the 3D printing technology has also been made more superior to be utilized in health care. 3D printed models can effectively help doctors when planning for surgery because it helps them to better understand the nature of the disorder and the treatment approaches to be done on each specific case.

Modbury, South Australia -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/23/2015 -- The world has absolutely become modern and technologically advanced with the coming of the digital era. These revolutionary global changes are all over the news introducing the latest developments and inventions in all sorts of different things. One of the most trending innovative discoveries that have influenced even the most sensitive industries of all is the discovery and improvement of the 3D printing technology.

3D printers have long been used most especially in the manufacturing business and it has really been successful in leveraging the number of production with reduced cost in its operations because companies would not have to hire a great number of people anymore for the production and because it is more cost-efficient to manufacture more products over a shorter period of time, sales and revenue has also been escalated tremendously.

With all the scientific and medical engineering advancements, the 3D printing technology has also been made more superior to be utilized in health care. 3D printed models can effectively help doctors when planning for surgery because it helps them to better understand the nature of the disorder and the treatment approaches to be done on each specific case. Using 3D printers to produce models of the heart, liver including the brain could be a perfect pre-surgical planning tool as these models could also help medical practitioners to clearly explain the treatment or surgical plan to the patients and their significant others.

Another proof that the 3D printing technology has been successful in aiding life-threatening surgical procedures; this has transpired just last October 29, 2015, where a 10-year-old boy had to undergo a high-risk surgical procedure which is a partial liver transplant at the Shanghai General Hospital in China. The operation was very complicated because of the difference in the size of the organ between the donor and the recipient. It would put the child's condition in peril if the transplant would not be done accurately. However, the doctor, Zhong Lin, utilized the 3D printing technology to create a model of the liver. With the help of the 3D printed model of the liver, the surgical team was able to plan the procedure carefully and the surgery became a success with the patient and his donor now on the road to full recovery.

With this breakthrough in science and medicine, the value of the 3D printers has been recognized globally and experts are still working on the improvement of the technology to target successful organ replacements in the near future.
