Advanced medical training requires particular tools for specialized procedures. Sometimes this training carries risks to the patients and doctors alike. At the University of Minnesota Medical School, the urology department is taking advantage of 3D printing to create models of both the surgical field and the specialized tools required to learn advanced techniques.

Researchers at CREST, the Center for Research in Simulations and Education Technologies at University of Minnesota Medical School, are using Stratasys 3D Printers to design an alternative solution. CREST is producing realistic, anatomic models from PolyJet and FDM 3D printing materials based on actual patient imaging studies.
