1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

Classification of shoulder fractures has poor reliability. This study will investigate if 3D printing can improve the reliability in comparison to current imaging methods. To do this specialist doctors will classify 30 fractures according to their level of complication, by look at a 3D model, 2D CT scan, 3D CT scan and x-rays of each fracture.
