3D scanning technologies have become widely used for medical needs such as anatomical models, biocompatible implants and orthotic / prosthetic models. However, the use of 3D visuals of the scanned tissues using two-dimensional computer screens cannot give the desired effect. Although surgical planning with virtual reality technology provides more accurate results, it cannot be performed in every hospital due to high costs of the system. In this study, the operation of an advanced scoliosis patient was planned in advance. An ideal protocol to be used especially in complex spine operations was determined and its suitability to the target anatomical tissue structure was analyzed. At the same time, a surgical planning system based on layered manufacturing technologies to realize the production of the mentioned anatomical model is introduced.
