Posted Jan 08 2011 4:59am
Your surgical professional can have a three-dimensional model of your anatomy before your operation. How much smoother would your spinal surgery go if the orthopaedic doctor had an accurate duplicate of your spine before making one incision? Your surgical professional can make important choices on how to proceed with correcting your spinal cord injury before entering the operating room. These innovative models are accurate to 1/35th mm.
Whether your back surgical professional is preparing to fix a cervical spine injury, thoracic trauma, or a lumbar fracture, holding an precise replica of your spine will offer your spinal surgeon the opportunity to look at all angles and plan the best course of action for you. Finding the treatment for stenosis, or spondylitis can be more defined for your specific needs. The surgical professional can be more exact about the instruments needed and precise area for incisions before your back surgery begins.
Your spinal surgical professional may not even know about this advanced technology. Pre planning with these medical models can reduce operating room time by 10 to 15 percent. Thousands of dollars can be saved. When facing orthopedic surgery, ACRM three dimensional models will save you time and money.

ACRM are Anatomically Correct three dimensional Reference medical Models which are produce by using your Computed Axial Tomography, CT scan, or Magnetic Resonance Imaging, MRI. A medical stereolithographer will analyze and format these to create an precise replica of a patient’s anatomy. Each model is made of a bone like powder.
Neurologists can have a model in hand to prepare patients for neurosurgery. Imagine being able to visualize the course of action that will be taken for your child’s craniosynostosis. Having an precise model of the skull will give the doctor an opportunity to plan in advance of the actual surgery. This three dimensional replica will allow the neurosurgical professional a more complete view than the two dimensional imaging.
A practice run can be done on these models before brain surgery. This enables the surgeon to be more precise in how to orchestrate an individual course of action for your specific needs. Does your surgical professional know about ACRM? Discuss this revolutionary medical technology with your doctor today.
