Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

We report the development and use of MRI-compatible and MRI-visible 3D printed models in conjunction with advanced visualization software models to plan and simulate safe access routes to achieve a theoretic zone of cryoablation for percutaneous image-guided treatment of a C7 pedicle osteoid osteoma and an L1 lamina osteoblastoma. Both models altered procedural planning and patient care.

CONCLUSION:

Patient-specific MRI-visible models can be helpful in planning complex percutaneous image-guided cryoablation procedures.
