Here’s a nice spot by Richard Banks where doctors are using 3D printing to print bones from X-rays, instead of print outs, to help them diagnose a patient’s problems:

“Rather than printing on paper, we’re printing on a bed of cement powder using an acid instead of ink, which reacts with the cement to print whatever pattern we want,” explained Dr. Barralet. “It’s similar to a CT scan, in that the image is created one layer at a time. The result is three-dimensional.”
