National Institute of Health 570x570 National Institute of Health: Creating Physical 3D Stereolithograph Models of Brain and SkullPublished online through the NCBI 2007 October edition, The National Institute of Health released an interest study into the reverse engineering of a 3D physical object scanned using an MRI or CT, for example, and the images are used to render a three-dimensional virtual model. They go on to describe Rapid prototyping as a new technology that uses this virtual model to print or fabricate a physical model.

“Stereolithography is a rapid prototyping technique with several variants; and, in our application, layers of plaster can form a solid, physical model after a binding agent is applied to each printed layer.

Although other hand-made and computerized modelling approaches have been used to model neuroanatomy [7][8], rapidly prototyped models preserve anatomical scale and anatomical relationships, are three-dimensional, are understood by visual and tactile learners, do not require software training, and can be produced to the anatomical specifications of the individual patient.”
This is an excellent perspective into the advantages of using Atomic Diffusion proccesses like F.F.F (Free Form Fabrication) and S.L.S (Select Laser Sintering) in the field of Neuroscience.
