Additive manufacturing is suitable to produce personalized medical phantoms and test specimens. In particular, the layer-by-layer curing of liquid photopolymers with embedded nanoparticles makes it possible to produce phantoms with defined physical properties. We have therefore developed a novel system to mix nanoparticles with photopolymers, disperse them and then feed them into an additive manufacturing system.
