Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) 3D physical models of inner organs have been expected for a quick understanding of a patient anatomy due to the better reality, portability, and tactile impression comparing to conventional 2D/3D medical image visualizations on a computer screen. 3D printing provides a possibility to generate an accurate 3D physical model conveniently with a low cost. Especially, a patient-specific model with transparency based on elastic materials is expected as an essential technique for supporting surgery planning and simulation. Our study proposes an approach to generate such a physical model with a low cost for supporting uterine surgical operations based on MR images by using a hybrid technique (inexpensive 3D printer and mold casting). We applied this method to generate uterine models for four patients before the surgical operations and evaluated accuracy of the models quantitatively. Comparing to the conventional method based on image observations on a screen, the advantage of the 3D physical model for surgical planning was demonstrated.
