Int J Rheum Dis: Lipoprotein (a) related accelerated atherosclerosis in a young patient: An important differential when considering Takayasu arteritis

Not all of our work involves 3D Printing! In this paper on the differential diagnosis of Lipoprotein (a) atherosclerosis vs Takayasu’s arteritis, 3D Modelling helped visualise the pathology and preparation of the manuscript.

In many cases the standard, templated 3D Volume Rendered (3DVR) reconstructions from PACS and diagnostic radiology workstations do the job, but when you specifically want to highlight features or portray complex elements, then clinical and anatomical input is critical.

Congratulations Dr Harris on this paper and we look forward to more collaborations like this!
