Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

To date, 3D printing has been used in various sectors such as industry, sports, military, architecture and bioengineering with a multitude of benefits. Medical applications related to 3D printing are expanding rapidly and are expected to revolutionize health care. Additive technology in medicine is a multidisciplinary field which combines, among others, engineering, medicine, physics, chemistry, mathematics, material science, and information technology. Implants, 3D anatomical models before surgeries, 3D models for medical education purposes, bioprinting of organs and tissues, and printing of personal protective equipment are indicative applications of 3D printing in medicine. 

In this Special Issue titled “3D Printing for Medical Applications”, we welcome regular, review articles, clinical, in vitro and in situ studies, innovative protocols, and reports on these topics. This Special Issue seeks high-quality works and topics focusing on the latest novel medical applications of 3D printing.
