The world's first 3D-printed "Brain Phantom" enables new insights into the research of neurodegenerative diseases.

A groundbreaking project by TU Wien and MedUni Wien has produced the world's first 3D-printed "Brain Phantom," enabling an innovative application of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

This model, which mimics the structure of brain fibers, allows visualization using a special variant of MRI called diffusion-weighted MRI (dMRT).

Under the leadership of TU Wien and MedUni Wien, a scientific team has demonstrated how these brain models can contribute to advancing research on neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and Multiple Sclerosis.
