      ANATOMIC ACCURACY OF INTRACEREBRAL VESSELS 3D PRINTED MODELS (Abstract): Three dimensional (3D) printing technology in healthcare has a high potential to help surgeons in their daily practice. The aim of our study is to demonstrate the accuracy of 3D printed models that include the anterior cerebral circulation, using a specific workflow and a resin based printing device. We included 9 cases with 3D printed models without any vascular malformation and we analyzed the differences between the computed tomography angiography (CTA) data and solid model both manually (measurements made by three radiologists) and semiautomatic (using a cloud processing software). We found no statistical differences between the initial scanning of the patient and the 3D printed models. Vascular 3D printed models manufactured using SLA technology provide a high level of anatomic accuracy.
