3D printing human anatomy

19 February 2019 

In this episode of Lingohack on learning technologies and methods, medical students attempt what many of us might see as impossible - trying to learn and memorise human anatomy which is no mean feat. Traditionally students have used plastic models to learn about the body, but these are rigid and generally not anatomically accurate. Plastinated cadavers have drawbacks and are hard to come by too. NTU's Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine Assistant Professor and Head of Anatomy Sreenivasulu Reddy Mogali took this a step further. He found a way to 3D print anatomically accurate parts of the body by using multiple materials.
