Point-of-care manufacturing 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.

Learning objectives:

  • Obtain an overview of what medical applications are active in 3D printing and what applications have potential to benefit from 3D Printing
  • Learn the process from patient to medical scan to 3D printed model and all the important steps to ensure safety and effectivity.
  • Understand what is important from the clinical perspective to bring 3D printing to your institution (big or small)
  • Gain an appreciation for the technical, institutional, and economic impact 3D printing can have within a hospital
