desiBLOG, an initiative, first of its kind in the country from Altem Technologies, to broadcast 3D Printing news, happenings and updates in India. Interested individuals can submit their India specific 3D Printing articles in this forum.
March 9th, 2016

Since few months, I started propagating the benefits of 3D Printing for Medical and Dental applications. I really found it as a demanding task to meet each and every Specialist surgeon / Healthcare professionals and highlight about how Altem Technologies 3D Printing can help them in treating patients undergoing surgeries. I was eagerly ready when News9 Channel, a reputed English News channel based out of Bangalore, was willing to come out with the program on the same topic. Thanks to Miss. Nabila who interviewed us with right queries and the program when aired also emphasized on 3D Printed models of Brain, Heart, Skull, Foot skeleton etc.



Early this year, Japan’s Central Social Insurance Medical Council, an organization of the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, has announced that the cost of 3D printed organ models used to assist medical treatments and surgeries will be covered under the standard medical insurance payment range. It will not be a surprise to see very soon all the countries including India, will follow the suit. There are enough success stories involving 3D Printers for Surgical planning for CHD (Congenital Heart Disease), Brain Tumours, Kidney Tumours, Maxillofacial surgeries and in some plastic surgeries etc. In India, Doctors have used 3D Printers for Surgical planning for CHD, Brain Tumour & even developing a prosthetic eye where the original cancer affected eye socket has been removed. Understanding the anatomy and practicing surgeries on cadaver are not available to all students and realistic anatomic models and simulators can help in providing great knowledge to aspiring doctors. Pictures of few organ models that we were not able to display on the program are shown hereunder.
