Researchers use 3-D printer to make bone-like material

Washington State University researchers have created a bone-like material and structure using a 3-D printer. The material can be used in orthopedic procedures, dental work and to deliver medicine for treating osteoporosis. Furthermore, when paired with actual bone, it can act as a scaffold allowing for new bone growth. The researchers say they are already seeing promising results with in vivo tests on rats and rabbits.
