This is primarily done via creating physical 3-dimensional models utilizing data obtained from imaging methodologies such as CT and MRI. In its first 2 years, the program focused solely on congenital heart disease, assisting the pediatric cardiology department by providing models for patient education, catheterization planning, and surgical planning. Currently, the program continues this mission while also beginning to branch into other specialties and providing models for research purposes. The program is additionally in the process of launching a 3D printing-service line with remote hospitals as customers.
