Abstract

Background/Objectives

This study proposes athree-dimensional (3D)modeling method using radiation DICOM(Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine) images to separately display adipose tissue and parenchyma.

Methods/Statistical analysis

MRI DICOM volume data that underwent a 0.1 mm volume scan were edited using the Terarecon(USA) 3D program to generate an STL conversion file, after which a Polyjet 3D printer was used for production.

Findings

Using the photopolymer of the Polyjet, breast tissue was formed using 3D printing. The fat tissue was made transparent, while the actual tissue was colored and set as a separate structure. This was performed to determine whether actual tissue was included in the imaging and to ensure proper posture.

Improvements/Applications

The limitation of this study was that the muscular tissue had toalso be separated and should have had asoft texture like silicon. This will be applied in future studies.
