3D Print Lab at the University Hospital of Basel

The 3D Print Lab at the University Hospital Basel is one of the pioneers in the field of medical 3D printing. Here, realistic anatomical models are printed from patient image data to illustrate complex spatial relationships and, as far as technically feasible, personalized guides, prostheses and in the future even implants are produced directly. The laboratory sees itself as a service provider and research platform for data visualization and additive manufacturing processes. An interdisciplinary team of surgeons and radiologists works in the 3D Lab with the aim of finding new forms of presentation and uses for three-dimensional image data.
