When considering complex surgical interventions, 3D models give you the ability to hold the relevant anatomy in your hand, precisely size implants, practice the procedure and avoid potential pitfalls.Learn more
3D models can facilitate clients understanding of surgical procedures and possible outcomes.
Further applications include soft tissue models and creation of bespoke implants, surgical instruments or templates.
Anatomic models to enhance understanding of intricate structures and to further understanding of conditions and their treatments.
Assessment of extension of oncologic masses and treatment planning.
Planning for surgical and interventional radiology approaches to portosystemic shunts, vascular ring anomalies and other malformations.
Treatment planning for corrective osteotomies and complex fracture repairs
“Using a life size 3d model to plan and rehearse a shoulder arthrodesis was extremely useful. There was a considerable reduction in surgical time and plate contouring was made far simpler. VetCT 3d printing service was efficient and easy to use. ”

“I ordered two 3D printed models from VetCT of severe bilateral angular limb deformities in a Shih-Tzu cross. The whole process took only a few days and the models were robust yet anatomically very accurate. Although measurements were made from preoperative imaging, a severe torsional deformity introduced a potentially large margin of error. Sectioning the model allowed proof of concept of the surgical plan and minor modifications were made. I would have no hesitation recommending the 3D printing service from VetCT.”

“3D printing by VetCT is a brilliant service, in the 3 months we have had our CT scanner we have used it 3 times for corrective osteotomy planning, and each one has made the surgery much easier.”
