Welcome to the future of medicine – where advancements in imaging technology meets clinical practice.

At the 3D Printing and Visualization (3D PrintViz) lab, we help UCDavis Health providers and surgeons visualize their complex cases with hands-on anatomic prints.

The Department of Radiology and Department of Biomedical Engineering join forces to bring this service to UC Davis Health for goals in advancing patient care, research, and education.

  • 3D printing

    Surgeons and physicians have used these models to aid in surgical planning, intra-operative guidance, and, most importantly, advancing patient and medical education.

  • Vizualization

    The 3D PrintViz lab features state-of-the-art Augmented Reality (AR) hardware that allows clinicians to view synthesized medical imaging data as a hologram in physical space.  This technique is a powerful tool that can serves as a supplement to physical 3D modeling depending on as a stand-alone service depending on our client's needs.
