3D Printing and experimental surgery?

Not ¬†that this is a technical blog, but it is interesting to note some of the new technologies that are arising and how the media reports them.. However, like many of these stories involving high-tech new devices and surgery, there seems a tendency to present them more from the “wow look at this” angle rather than a balanced evaluation of the outcomes. Very scant details of the clinical case and results are discussed in the news item and the developers note ¬†“there are still big biological and chemical issues to be solved.”


Interesting, yes, a good example of media science reporting, well you decide.
