New technology at a Centre county hospital is improving radiation treatment for cancer patients.
This 3D printer may look small but it’s making a huge impact in radiation oncology treatment for cancer patients.
Mount Nittany Medical Center’s Dr. Veeral Patel say hospitals with radiation treatment departments have had to use more simple, less effective devices for cancer radiation treatment…That is until the 3D printer.
It can be used for patients with any cancer. The 3D printer uses a step by step process that could be finished in one night.
Having the machine in house allows Mount Nittany to get molds cheaper and quicker to a patient.
