Custom Made Realistic Heart Models

CrossMedical from Japan has developed a method for creating more precise models of the human heart using materials that resemble the texture and resilience of a real heart. The company also offers the option of creating custom models based on a patient’s CT images in addition to conventional adult heart models. “The technology can be used as an educational tool or as part of a pre-op assessment for surgeons to determine which approach is best for the patient, particularly when dealing with congenitally malformed hearts.”
