Michael Winkler, associate professor of radiology and cardiology at the University of Kentucky (UK) College of Medicine, is 3D printing custom heart models to aid physicians and their patients. “Fitting patients with new heart valves or stents is challenging because everyone’s anatomy is slightly different in size and shape,” explained Professor Winkler.
