The aim is to improve pre-operative planning for neurosurgeons through 3D Printing, as well as to investigate trends in aneurysms to better predict which patients are a priority. 
The benefit of having a physical 3D model of the blood vessels and aneurysm allows surgeons to fully understand the anatomy and to physically see it, rather than having to create a mental image through 2D slices from a MRI or angiogram.
The Project and Research is in collaboration with Holly Macdonald and Capital & Coast DHB, Supervised by Bernard Guy.
