Doctors, researchers in Brazil develop affordable cranial reconstruction

It can cost up to $50,000 for cranial reconstruction surgery, meaning that for many the opportunity is out of their hands. But a team of researchers and physicians in Brazil is working with 3D-printing technology and CT scanned imagery to reconstruct skull fragments at a lower cost. 

Dr. Renato Rozental, a researcher and physician at Fiocruz and Federal University in Rio de Janeiro, explains how it works.
