Outside the business world, 3D has multiple new applications that potentially will enhance healthcare, diagnostics as well as delivery of medication and treatment. New Zealand doctors and scientist have created the world’s first 3D scanner for medical purposes. Giving doctors 3D imagery of the human body, going in depth to molecular levels. Enabling doctors to view highly detailed targeted areas for treatment, this device established by the University of Canterbury has been a success with sheep and other animals. There are still many hurdles to be crossed within the next few years to perfect this tech. The future has much potential for 3D medical imagery and within this decade we can see it going into a normal diagnostic.
