3-D Printed Heart Models Displayed at SCCT 2018

3D printing is being used increasingly in structural heart planning in cardiology. Examples of 3D printed heart models displayed by Vital Images at SCCT 2018. #SCCT2018

A 360 degree photo of the 3-D printed models created from cardiac computed tomography (CT) scans displayed in the Vital Images booth at the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) 2018 meeting. The vendor has a partnership with two 3-D printer companies where users can send STL files from the Vital software for remote, mail order printing projects. The models are made of different materials, including hard plastic and flexible rubber for a more life-like simulation of the anatomy.
