Surgeons at Rady Children’s hospital are now using 3-dimensional imagery to evaluate and better understand patient with complex heart conditions.

“You can actually look at the heart, rotate the heart and look at the relationship of all the different structures,” said Dr. Sanjeet Hegde, Pediatric Cardiologist.

Dr. Hegde specializes in cardiac imagery. For the last 6 months, Hedge has been working with San Diego 3D printing companies to produce models of patient’s hearts. The models allow physicians to visualize the heart’s anatomy in ways never before possible.
