3D Heart Function Modelling in China

In recent years, 3D modelling has become increasingly popular in the healthcare industry in China. The country has seen a rapid development of medical 3D printing technology and the use of 3D modelling for medical applications.

Zhou Shuyang, a Chinese gastroenterologist, has attracted new attention after his team successfully used 3D modelling to reconstruct a functioning heart. This beating heart was first seen as a series of CT scans. The model is so lifelike that it appears to be worn by a real person.

Having a heart that is still beating is common, but opening the valve completely is challenging. The white membrane known as the valve is the one that stretches and contracts in response to the animation’s changing heartbeat.

In general, operation photographs, comprehensive CT scans, and diagrams of the specimen structure served as the foundation for the intricate illustrations of the human heart and surgical techniques.

Zhou rose to fame as China’s top doctor and painter in 2017 after drawing a heart that was incredibly lifelike.

One of the main applications of 3D modelling in healthcare in China is for surgical planning. By creating 3D models of a patient’s anatomy, doctors and surgeons can better plan and prepare for surgeries, reducing the risk of complications and improving patient outcomes. This is particularly important for complex surgeries, such as those involving the brain or spinal cord.

Another application of 3D modelling in the nation is for personalised medical devices, such as prosthetics and implants. By using 3D printing technology to create custom-made devices, patients can receive medical devices that are tailored to their specific needs and anatomy.

In addition to these applications, 3D modelling is also being used for medical education and training. Medical students can use 3D models to better understand complex anatomical structures and systems, improving their knowledge and skills.

Also, 3D modelling is being used in medical research in China. Researchers can create 3D models of organs and tissues to study their structure and function, as well as to test the effectiveness of new treatments and therapies.

The nation has also been promoting the development of 3D printing and 3D modelling technology in healthcare, including investing in research and development and providing financial support to companies and institutions involved in the industry.

Hence, 3D modelling has significant potential in the healthcare system in China, with applications in surgical planning, personalized medical devices, medical education, and research. As technology continues to advance, it is likely that we will see even more widespread use of 3D modelling in the healthcare industry in China and around the world.

Meanwhile, authorities in the province of Zhejiang in East China have issued a series of guidelines with the intention of developing and bolstering the nine industries of the future. These industries include future networks, the metaverse, aerospace information, bionic robots, synthetic biology, power storage, hydrogen green energy, cutting-edge new materials, and flexible electronics.

The guidelines are intended to: a) assist regional businesses in the development of innovations that are globally competitive by the year 2035; b) establishment of five groups of international public patent pools for future industries; c) cultivation of more than five enterprises in future industries that have a global influence; d) and the construction of more than five future industrial clusters with a scale of more than 100 billion yuan ($14.42 billion).
