For bone cancer operations, accurate localisation of bad tissue margins is of vital importance. Because surgeons have to deal with standard techniques and margins of error, they cannot always execute their pre-operative plan as intended. These 3D-printed jigs ensure necessary precision, are customised and can be optimized automatically.
