Conference Abstract: Recently many pediatric physicians have transgressed from using medical imaging exclusively for diagnostic purposes to enhanced visualization with value addition in the form of 3D virtual and physical bio models for pre surgical planning and family and patient education. This transition is bringing about a steep rise in hospital-based 3D printing coined as “Point of care 3D Printing” in pediatric hospitals. Physicians and hospital leadership realize 3D printing can usher in, new innovative safe procedures, treatment possibilities as a definitive pathway to better personalized pediatric patient care. Radiologists and surgeons are working together to bring the best outcomes for the precious pediatric patients they care every day.
