A review of the issues surrounding three-dimensional computed tomography for medical modelling using rapid prototyping techniques

2013-03-15T11:22:45Z (GMT) by Richard Bibb John Winder
This technical note aims to raise awareness amongst radiographers of the application of Computed Tomography data in the production of models using Rapid Prototyping technologies. It also aims to provide radiographers with recommendations that will assist them in providing three-dimensional Computed Tomography data that can fulfil the requirements of medical modelling. Potential problem areas in data acquisition and transfer are discussed and suggestions are given for methods that aim to avoid these.
