Georgi Makin, Editor of 3DMedNet, is joined by Jade Parker (Oncology Central) and Shana Cook (Milwaukee School of Engineering) as they discuss how patient experience with surgery can be improved with 3D printing, drawing from Shana’s personal experience 3D printing her own tumor from MRI data, following surgical resection of retroperitoneal leiomyosarcoma.


  • At 5:11, Cook left Benedictine University in May of 2013, rather than March as quoted. 
  • At 5:43, the MRI scan revealing the tumor was conducted in 2015, rather than 2013 as quoted.
