Repost from @irpatnih: Zebrafish, tiny members of the minnow family, are used in many types of biomedical research. Three members of the Section on Vertebrate Organogenesis at #NIH @nichd_nih — aquatic research specialist Daniel Castranova, postbaccalaureate fellow Bakary Samasa, and lab chief Brant Weinstein — recently won the top prize in the 46th annual Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition for this photo showing the bones, scales, and lymphatic vessels of a juvenile #zebrafish. ⠀⠀
The image is not only gorgeous to look at, but it also contributed to the lab's discovery that the zebrafish skull contains lymphatic vessels, which were previously thought to occur only in mammals. This breakthrough will allow scientists to use zebrafish to study the development of these vessels, which help remove waste products from the brain and thus could play a role in human neurological diseases like #Alzheimers.⠀⠀⠀

Digital manufacturing is becoming a big part of dentistry. Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is allowing dentists to create models of teeth and other things in their own office now. Carefully scanning a patient's mouth with a digital device called an intraoral scanner is one of the most important first steps that creates an image of all of the teeth. Here's our founder @breakthrulx partnering with Dr.Dean @deanfamilydental to show us how it's done. Thank you Dr.Dean for helping us learn how #digitalmanufacturing and #dental3dprinting helps you and your patients.

This model shows a physical 3D anatomical model of a new-born baby girl’s heart who had presented with an antenatal diagnosis of coronary artery fistula to the coronary sinus. ⠀

On echocardiography, the anatomy of the fistula and of the left atrium (LA) was difficult to demonstrate because of the small size of the coronary vessels so the 3D anatomical model gave the clinicians an enhanced insight of the left atrium by demonstrating the distortion by the fistula. ⠀

The anatomical model also clearly showed the serpiginous course followed by the fistula. By having access to the anatomical model, the clinicians had a greater understanding of the mechanics of the fistula behind the indented left atrium, causing an obstruction to the mitral valve. The 3D printed anatomical model was customized and split to the clinician’s specification. ⠀

By splitting the model precisely in the location as seen in the model above, clinicians were able to see and understand the mitral valve in much more detail. This level of insight would have been nearly impossible to visualize through 2D CT images alone and the new plan, created with the information provided by the 3D model resulted in zero complications during the surgery and a perfect surgical result for the patient.⠀
