How to do 3D modeling for cardiothoracic surgery

Shanda Blackmon, M.D., M.P.H., a thoracic surgeon at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, shares how to create 3D modeling for cardiothoracic surgery.

3D modeling is the process of developing a mathematical representation of any 3D surface of an object via specialized software. The outcome can be displayed as a 2D image through a process called 3D rendering or as an actual physical model or hologram.
