Goose was one of my first pets to photograph, he belongs to the Aldie Vet Clinic’s office assistant.  She adopted Goose when someone left him at the clinic because of his special needs.  She was able care for him and give him a new home.  When Goose arrived at my studio, his Momma let him down and he began sniffing around the space for about 10 minutes.  Once he had everything mapped out, we were ready to work.  It was really amazing to see him walk around the studio using his mental picture, and if you didn’t know any better, you would have no idea he couldn’t see!!!  In just 10 minutes, he had everything so perfectly figured out, that he could even walk up and jump up on the bed, knowing precisely where it was!!  He never bumped into anything and was very very very friendly.  He had a smile on his face the whole time, it was an amazing experience for me :)

Visit Suzanne’s website Paw Paw Pretty to see her wonderful pet photography.

Doctor saves child’s life by practicing heart surgery on 3D-printed model

Heart surgery is an extremely difficult procedure. Even more so when the tiny anatomy of a small child is involved. When 14-month old Roland Lian Cung Bawi’s heart was failing him, his surgeon Erle Austin knew that he had to prepare meticulously for an intricate operation. Initially he consulted other surgeons, but this yielded conflicting advice. So Austin turned to 3D printing for help.

Using the facilities at the University of Louisville’s engineering school, Austin and his medical team produced a three dimensional model of little Ronald’s heart. Pediatric operations are difficult because the interior structures of a child’s organs are small and hard to see clearly. This model allowed the surgical team to come up with a precise plan to limit the amount of exploratory incisions, reduce operating time and prevent the need for follow-up operations.

Fuck. This is important.

3D printers are turning out to be the biggest medical breakthrough I’ve heard of in a long fucking time

3D printers are turning out to be one of the biggest breakthroughs of any kind I’ve seen in my lifetime.
