3D printed coronary artery model aid stent placement

Personalised 3D printed coronary artery models are being developed by WA researchers to simulate coronary stenting and help assess the feasibility of stent placement in individual patients. The 3D printed models can help determine stent lumen visibility with third generation dual-source CT (DSCT)  and aid in correct placement, according to vascular surgeon Professor Shirley Jansen, ...
