    Practice Makes Perfect: 3D Model Aids Surgical Outcomes

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Using a 3D virtual reality model to prepare for kidney tumor surgery could substantially improve the outcome of the procedure. A team led by UCLA found specifically that such preparation can result in reduced operating times, less blood loss during the procedure, and shorter hospital stays.

    “Surgeons have long since theorized that using 3D models would result in a better understanding of the patient anatomy, which would improve patient outcomes,” said Dr. Joseph Shirk, a clinical instructor in urology at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine and the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center. “But actually seeing evidence of this magnitude, generated by very experienced surgeons from leading medical centers, is an…
