1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

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