3D Systems Corp., a Valencia-based manufacturer has announced that it has joined the humanitarian “RP for Baghdad” project. This project is helping severely injured Iraqi citizens by making medical models available to Iraqi surgical teams in major trauma centers. The Iraqi League for Medical Professionals, based in Iraq, is providing the infrastructure for this service. Patients with serious trauma injuries will be provided with a CT scan, whose digital output data will be processed to create a 3-D model of the patient’s injuries. 3D Systems will provide physical models from the processed CT scan data. The models will be used by medical teams in Iraq to plan and practice surgery on the patient.
