This an amazing discovery in both the medical and engineering fields!
Recently research and developments in utilising the rise of the 3-D Printing Technology has made huge contributions in the medical field!
The extent of this new innovation in research has lead to even replace diseased bone with an exact metal copy printed out of a specially engineered medical 3-D printer, the output would be a a bone that would be porous enough which could allow new tissues to grow inside it!
The best part is that as the metal slowly dissolves over time it actually leaves behind healthy bone! It might be interesting to know that such implants are already being developed today!
All that is needed is a CT scan and the printer can generate the custom fit “bone” unique to the needs of the patient.
What a great advancement in medical technology!
