Titanium plates have been used to patch up broken skulls for decades. Yet there are no one-size fits-all when it comes to these bone plates – like our eyes and fingerprints, our skulls are almost completely unique in shape.
Fortunately, three-dimensional imaging and rapid prototyping technologies now allow man to 'print' 3D models of patients' skulls from CT and MRI scans.
For nearly eight years, SIRIM has provided surgeons with such 3D biomodelling services. Every titanium plate produced at the IC – Innovation in Biomedical labs at Bukit Jalil is delicately knocked, bent and sculpted into shape by hand, allowing surgeons to plan their surgeries with greater precision.
