From Academia: 3D Printing for Veterinary Medicine

Part human evolution, part recent pandemic, we are more caring towards our animal companions in the last few years. Veterinary medicine spending as a whole is on the rise because of our compassion for our best friends. In this week’s issue of “From Academia”, we include three recent publications from veterinary medicine on how we can take care of our animals using 3D printing and 3D scanning technologies. The first article lays the foundation of the how-tos in 3D printing for veterinary medicine. The second article focuses on implant development for large bone defects using 3D printed bone. The result was astonishing. The last article uses 3D scanning and 3D printing to make prostheses for large animals.

From Academia” features recent, relevant, close to commercialization academic publications. Subjects include but not limited to healthcare 3D printing, 3D bioprinting, and related emerging technologies.
