Replica 3dm is a 3D printing and modelling service for the NHS located on-site at Salisbury District Hospital.
Replica 3dm produce medical models of parts of the body using information from CT and MRI scans that help surgeons plan their operations. The models are an exact replica of the area that the surgeon needs to operate on and enables them to identify anatomical defects or fractures. It may also allow for smaller incisions which can reduce length of stay and operating and anaesthetic times. Models can also be used as an effective aid when explaining the operation to patients.
