New technological techniques in the Faculty of Medicine and University Hospital
Today there are interns in medical school groups involved with this project.
In today's world, the so-called “manufacturing technologies by addition” or 3D printing also called rapid prototyping, have transcended the borders of almost all fields of science, and the Faculty of Medicine together with the University Hospital & #8220; Dr. José Eleuterio González & #8221; They are not left behind.
Dr. C. Guillermo Elizondo Riojas, Head of the Department of Radiology and Image, is someone with a scientific vision of the world and a literary and intellectual heritage that makes him unique and a treatment of human warmth towards his patients, with all this managed to launch the 3D technique.
& #8220; The first purpose for the use of technology is for an educational purpose, for students, since it is easier for them to understand the anatomy and study of the human body & #8221 ;, commented the doctor.
& #8220; In the same way, it helps patients to have a better understanding in relation to some study carried out, tumor removal, and that there is a circle of communication and information between, doctor, student, patient, and family, that is, we win all & #8221 ; I add.
& #8220; Within the clinical area, the surgeon has a greater idea of how a tumor can spread to other parts, helping to prepare better before entering surgery & #8221 ;, he added.
The importance of applying these technologies in medicine lies in allowing the reproduction of a tissue or organ through the use of bioprinting, which is expected to have a transcendent impact on multiple medical specialties (reconstructive plastic surgery, maxillofacial surgery, orthopedics, surgery spine, arthroscopy, transplant surgery, among many others).
Dr. C. Guillermo Elizondo Riojas, ended by making the most cordial invitation to the next exhibition in March, on the work and evolution of 3D printing, which has been done, along with other residents.
