Hospital-based 3D printing is increasing the ability of clinicians to educate, plan and treat patients. The use of 3D printing allows the creation of patient-matched models, guides, and devices to be manufactured within a hospital setting. This workshop will walk through the critical steps to create a 3D printing lab and the many ways it can be used.
- Understand the movement toward 3D printing in hospitals including applications, reimbursement and regulatory implications
- Dive deeper into the basics of starting a hospital-based 3D printing lab
- Discuss the various software and hardware tools in addition to successful workflows for hospital-based labs
- Explore more advanced topics such as surgical planning and template/guide design
- Gain an appreciation for the issues involved in bringing 3D printing to multi-center hospital facilities
