When you work in the medical industry, much of your job involves education. This is obviously the case with those in the medical education field, but it’s also true for medical professionals. In today’s digital world, 3D medical model technology is an integral part of that educational process.
Research is also an integral part of the medical world, especially for those in the fast-paced world of biotechnology. For firms large and small, 3D medical models help communicate research concepts, helping those firms acquire funding so that new treatments can be developed and approved in order to save lives.
Here are just a few of the places you’ll find 3D medical model technology hard at work.
In the Classroom
In the past, medical students learned primarily from textbooks and printed materials. This made it a challenge to visualize specific structures, processes, and medical procedures, as instruction was limited to the 2D world. It was a challenge for students to develop a true understanding of how certain bodily processes or medical treatments worked, as they were unable to see them in action.
Now, thanks to 3D medical models, students can explore the human body inside and out. They can easily visualize structures that weren’t easily seen before, either because they were hidden deep within the body or because they were too small to be seen with the naked eye.
A 3D medical model can come in the form of a digital rendering or animation or a real-world model that students can handle and move. Either way, this technology provides a way for educators to help their students better understand the human body, as well as how certain treatments and surgical procedures should work.
In the Exam Room
With more people using the internet to research health problems and procedures, patients these days are better informed than ever before. Doctors can bring cutting-edge technology into their offices in order to educate their patients about ongoing health issues, as well as the treatments necessary to prevent and cure them.
A 3D medical model can help cut through the language of medical professionals and translate things visually so that patients leave with a full understanding of what’s going on inside their bodies. Doctors want all of their patients to feel 100% comfortable with upcoming surgical procedures or new medication regimes. 3D medical models are a great way to educate patients and answer all of their questions.
For example, 3D medical models can be generated to simulate a vivid and lifelike representation of the heart, a complex joint, bones, delicate nerves, and networks of veins and vessels.
In the Laboratory
3D medical models bring the world of visual creativity and science together in order to help researchers actually see their theories in action. Sometimes, a device or treatment doesn’t work the same way on paper as it does in reality. 3D medical models help biotech firms understand how certain treatments could work in the real world.
A 3D medical model can help demonstrate how a new medication could work systemically or even at the cellular level. So, when the biotech firm brings the drug to the market, the 3D medical model is a key tool in their advertising arsenal.
