Case Studies Patient’s liver and tumor - Onco case

3D Model Helps Surgeons with a Resection of Liver Cancer Surgery

Case Study

The Case

Facing limitations with his patient's 2D scans, a surgeon at one of Europe’s largest hospitals opted for a precision 3D model from Axial3D. This decision aimed to improve visualization of the patient’s condition, aiding informed decision-making and avoiding potential procedure postponement or cancellation.

The Solution

In a matter of hours, Axial3D had supplied the surgeon with a digital, interactive model of the patient’s liver and tumor, throwing new insight and precision into the mix, enabling him to accurately identify branches of the anatomy that were close to the tumor and form a precise plan that would allow him to resect the tumor safely.

Benefits of using the 3D Model

The procedure was carried out successfully, and thanks solely to the pre-operative insights provided by the 3D model, the surgeon was able to avoid cutting key anatomical areas that could have caused serious injury to the patient and had a negative impact on his recovery.
