Trainee surgeon's Plastic Bones idea could save NHS cash

BBC News reports that trainee surgeon, Mark Frame's plastic bones idea could save the NHS a lot of money. "Mark Frame realised he could help the NHS cut costs by using freely available software programmes and the internet to create models of bones. A company in the Netherlands transforms 3D CT scan images into plastic models. The bones are used before complex operations to give surgeons a clearer idea of what to expect. The first model of a child's forearm cost £77, and arrived by post in a week."

There is a saving both of cash and time. And it was very good to hear on the radio that Mark Frame is providing this new idea free. He has written a guide so that other surgeons can make their own bones. The guide is being considered for publication by the World Journal of Science and Technology. He is also contactable via twitter: @3Dbones
