CHELSEA, MICHGAN, UNITED STATES, October 27, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jameson, a 3-year-old Belgian Malinois Officer with the Michigan State Police Canine unit, under the direction of Canine Commander Sgt Dave Yount, volunteered to undergo a full-body CT scan (computerized tomography) to collect critical data to improve veterinary treatment of ballistic injuries suffered by Canine Working Dogs. The CT scan was performed by Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine and donated to Modl3d, the company working on innovative solutions to save military and police K9s injured in the line of duty. Drs. Jody Lawver, DVM DACVR (Dept of Large Animal Sciences) and Maureen Spinner, DVM DACVS-SA (Department of Small Animal Sciences) donated their time to obtain excellent CT images during a routine procedure.

Richard Doerer, founder of Modl3d, Dr. Janice Baker and Dr. Ioana Sonea are leading this groundbreaking research effort to develop a realistic canine simulator to train military canine handlers, veterinarians and Police K9 personnel on the resuscitation and treatment of military and police working dogs suffering from ballistic injuries.

“This Canine Medical Simulator will lead to improved treatment plans for injured working K9s and save lives” said Richard Doerer, founder of Modl3d. “This groundbreaking research will also influence veterinary medicine for companion animals allowing veterinarians hands-on practice on the simulator prior to complex surgical procedures.”

Using CT and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) imaging to create realistic 3D printed models to thoroughly detail medical conditions, Modl3d works with veterinarians and veterinary researchers to develop medical simulators to allow for the repeated practice of surgical procedures and for education purposes.
