Technology is now at the forefront of driving innovation and reducing costs in the healthcare industry. One of the latest technologies making a great impact is 3D printing. It is having a significant impact in the healthcare industry because of its rapid increase in quality and popularity. 3D printing has evolved from simple prosthetics to models of functioning human hearts.


3D Printed Microfluidic Device Offers Alternative for Personalized Cancer Treatment

Researchers at MIT have developed a low-cost, 3D-printed device that can be used for testing cancer treatments on tumors. The device is capable of simulating cancer treatments on biopsied tumor tissue which may make it easier for medical professionals to test how a patient will respond to a cancer treatment before it is administered.
