Turkish Doctor Creates Ghost Organs With 3D Scanning
Internal scanning can obtain details at the cellular level
3D laser scanning has changed the way doctors treat patients. As it is growing and evolving, consumers are finding more uses to use this ever-growing technology. 3D laser scanners have officially become so small they can now enter inside of a human. These microscopic 3D laser scanners can scan a large amount of tissue, to create 3D models with.
This achievement is important for science to continue moving forward
Being able to 3D laser scan organs at a cellular level is one of the most essential achievements scientists could ever accomplish. Scanning at this level inside of an organ can acquire so much more information than a 3D laser scanner could pick up outside of the body.
At a cellular level, a doctor who can see the organ fully can understand very complex structures that a typical 3D laser scanner would not pick up. This achievement could unlock treatments to cancer, it could help doctors study brain functions, and it could help replace organs.
Patients wait years for organ transplants, some never get a new organ even though it would save their lives. Our healthcare system is set up as best as it can be, however, there is always room for improvement. By implementing this technology, the patient may have the option to opt for 3D replicas of the organs they need to function.
The background of 3D laser scanning
3D laser scanners weren’t always this small when they first developed. There was no way to safely place them in a human body to scan at a cellular level. In fact, in the 1960s, some of the first scanners were composed of giant chunky cameras that captured details from every angle.
Since then, they have developed into multiple types of 3D laser scanners that can perform many different functions and are all targeted to various fields. This has created a competitive market that is expected to grow in wealth by a few billion in the next few years.
This technology has many uses and benefits
3D laser scanners take rapid pictures, up to a few thousand per second. These pictures are taken from every angle, capturing the most microscopic details that eyes can’t see. Once this information is collected, it is then stored in the cloud, where it is saved forever. After that, it can be transferred to any partnered modeling system where the images can be edited and enhanced. Once the picture is as clear as a user wants it to be, they have the option of sending the information to anyone in the world. They also have the option of 3D printing it, for physical use.
3D laser scanning is versatile and can be used by everyone
Not only do doctors use this equipment to make considerable advancements in the field of medicine, but now anyone with interest can use this technology. The most exquisite quality of this technology is it is incredibly versatile. Meaning anyone in any field can use this technology and benefit from it.
For instance, fashion designers are now using this to create custom-fit clothing that is also sustainable. Construction managers are using this technology to go in and collect information about a scene. Project managers are using the equipment to rebuild homes in third world countries. Artists can use this to create beautiful pieces of art.
This technology has helped us make a fantastic breakthrough in the medical field. This technology will continue to grow and adapt to what consumers want and need.
