Title: Development of scaffolds for tissue engineering using selective laser sintering
Authors: Tan, Kwang Hui.

Issue Date: 2004
Abstract: Tissue Engineering (TE) is an important field in biomedical engineering that has raised interests among clinicians and engineers in the quest for alternative replacements for tissues, implants and organs. TE strategies for creating natural tissues or organs for anchoring dependent cell types rely on the application of temporary three-dimensional scaffolds to guide the proliferation. The characteristics required of TE scaffolds are major concerns in the pursuit to design and fabricate ideal scaffolds. Rapid Prototyping (RP) technologies are fast becoming the techniques of choice for the fabrication of TE scaffolds that can overcome the setbacks and limitations of conventional manual-based techniques.
