3D printing could lead to organ production



Laboratories around the country are experimenting with three-dimensional printing technology, including the printing of human body parts and internal organs. Scientists are currently able to print flat objects like skin, but printing tubular or hollow organs like a bladder or a lung would require internal scaffolding. The process can use stem cells from the patient as printing material for the 3D printer, but scientists still need to figure out how to print small blood vessels. RT's Sam Sacks has more on the melding of modern medicine and 3D printing.
