Figure 2: Bone models and PSI produced by additive manufacturing for patient number 6. (a) Bone model of the patient enables the visualization of the desired resection strategy and the tumor specimen to be resected. (b) PSI is equipped with flat surfaces to indicate the desired resection planes, holes to be pinned temporarily on the bone using Kirschner wires. (c) PSI has a position of best fit on the bone model. Calibration marks are engraved on the edge to provide visual control of the cutting depth. (d) Associated with a calibration mark direction lines indicate the depth of cutting. (e) The depth is measured from the outer edge of PSI to the deepest bone structure. (f) The direction lines engraved onto the flat surfaces of PSI.
