3D Printing in Medicine: Customized Bolus and Shields for Radiotherapy

3D Printing

Radiation therapy has become a critical treatment for cancer, but delivering radiation safely and effectively requires extensive planning and safety checks. In recent years, 3D printing has emerged as a valuable tool in the medical industry, enabling radiation oncologists to create patient-specific models for treatment planning and delivery. In this case study, we explore how Raise3D’s 3D printing technology has helped radiation oncologists create customized bolus and shields for radiotherapy, resulting in improved accuracy and outcomes.

Here are a few key benefits from medical 3D printing that are covered in the case study:

  • Improved accuracy: The use of patient-specific bolus and shields created with 3D printing technology results in improved accuracy and precision in radiation therapy treatment delivery.
  • Personalized treatment: The use of 3D printing enables radiation oncologists to create patient-specific models for treatment planning and delivery, ensuring a more personalized treatment experience for each patient.
  • Faster turnaround time: With the ability to create customized bolus and shields in-house, radiation oncologists can reduce the time and cost associated with outsourcing production.
