Across the country, many doctors are seeking new ways to treat patients. 3D technology is one of them and for that Tufts Medical Center in Boston is using a process called HeartFlow. It analyses the interior of the arteries and identifies the problem. It projects 3D images and shows exactly what is going on. This method will be allowing doctors in tracking the flow of blood without invasive surgery.
“We’ve never been able to measure blood flow directly without doing an invasive procedure. The blood flow data that comes from the HeartFlow technology is quite similar to the invasive catheterization data,” says Dr James Udelson. Ramiah Martin of Pennsylvania was saved using 3D technology. She was born without a windpipe and had to spend 13 months of her life in the hospital taking the right medication. But now she is out of danger because the doctors at Penn State Children’s Hospital had created a windpipe by the use of a 3D model derived from Ramiah’s oesophagus. Further, the doctors strengthened it with a small, plastic-like piece created on a 3D printer.
