Using Stereolithography Models In Planning Spinal Surgery
CT data of two patients was used to create computer generated 3-dimensional models of portions of their spines. One of the patients suffered from scoliosis and the other patient from tortecolis. The virtual models were then used to create stereolithography models in order to assist the planning of surgery of the two patients. The models increased the surgeons understanding of the deformations of the patients spines by providing a visualization tool. Also, the surgeon was able to use the models for patient education.
