A case found in the New England Journal of Medicine details a baby who suffered from a collapsed lung. A body organ was 3D printed from images obtained using high resolution CT scans and computer aided design. 3D printing can already reconstruct a number of tissue structures. The baby is doing well and lives in Ohio.
