3D modeling gains more traction in care organizations

Written by David

March 8, 2019

One touted goal of three-dimensional modeling—which encompasses virtual reality, augmented reality and 3D printing—is improved pre-surgical planning and intraoperative guidance. Increasingly, organizations are experimenting with 3D models to help surgeons and interventional radiologists determine how to best perform intricate procedures. These advanced visualization approaches replace flat two-dimensional images with life-like replications of patient organs and other body parts that physicians can hold in their hands or manipulate in a video-game-type setting. The need for 3D visualization methods is rising alongside the growth of minimally invasive procedures, which limit physicians’ ability to see inside the body because they are operating through tiny incisions or natural body openings. “It is … critical for physicians who are not doing traditional surgery with a scalpel, but rather a catheter-based approach, to understand what is going on in the 3D anatomy,” says Dmitry Levin, associate director of UW Medicine’s Center for CardioVascular Innovation.
