3D printing advances cerebral aneurysm research

By using MRI scans to map the blood vessels in the brains of those with aneurysms, researchers at Arizona State University can recreate those vessels in physical models with the aid of Solidscape 3D printing to better understand the effects of devices that are intended to prevent aneurysms from rupturing.
