Additive manufacturing, in other words three dimensional printing technologies has entered our lives by the defination of "industrial revolution". complex geometrics thar can't be overcomed by traditional methods can be produced easily to additive manufacturing technologies. Three dimensional printing technology, although some limitations, is evident not only in design but also in terms of production for future years. In this study, the importance of medical imaging in diagnosis and treatment has been researched and the use of models produced in three-dimensions after the processing of imaging data has been investigated in medical field. Researchers have shown that; three dimensional models are great benefit in various biomedical researchers, to training of medical students and to planning before surgery. Innovations such as the decrease of production costs in the coming years with development of three-dimensional printing technology, faster anatomical modeling and direct bioprinting of organs will further expand in field of medical used.
