3D printed phantom models from Russia could improve cancer radiotherapy

A team of scientists from Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) in Russia is developing a use for 3D printing which could help doctors verify and even improve radiotherapy treatment plans for cancer patients. The TPU researchers, who are working in collaboration with the Tomsk Cancer Research Institute on the project, have developed a method for 3D printing patient-specific dosimetry phantoms.
