|The Henry Ford Health System has treated its 1000th patient with the aid of 3D printing technology. Physical prototypes allow cardiologists to “see” procedures before they begin, which enhances the planning processes. The procedure was broadcasted to nearly 400 interventional cardiologists. Supported by the Henry Ford Innovations program, doctors at Henry Ford Health System have led the way in medical 3D printing. With the aid of 3D printing, they have become veteran users of a procedural valve that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently approved for commercial use.|
