Medical Sculpture Core


Overview of Services

The Department of Medical Illustration’s Medical Sculpture Laboratory advances education and research capabilities in medical sculpture and Anaplastology at Augusta University. This lab houses two spaces: a wet sculpture lab and 3D printing and technology lab. The wet lab space is fitted for sculpting and casting medical models including the use of clay, plaster, and silicone. The technology space contains two types of 3D printing technology: Sterolithography (SLA) or light cured resin and Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) or filament printing. The space  serves as an AU Core Research Lab to provide expertise in medical sculpture, volumetric visualization, and 3D printing. This lab space will offer educational and research opportunities for students to develop medical models such as surgical simulation models and patient education models. The research will improve surgical and medical training and provide insight into materials and technology to improve patient care.
