The process of 3D printing from radiology data commonly requires a biomedical engineer or radiology technologist to segment the region of interest. As segmentation tools become increasingly simplified and automated, more surgeons will prefer to do on-screen segmentation. In this presentation, Dr. Scott Kaiser (Kaiser Orthopedics, East Bay) will demonstrate how patient-specific anatomic models assist him in preoperative planning, patient education and consent, and intraoperative execution for pediatric orthopedic surgery.

Learning Objectives:

  • Upon completion, participants will understand a surgeon’s perspective on the use of 3D printing for pediatric orthopedic surgery
  • Upon completion, participants will be able to describe the surgical planning workflow for hospital-based, patient-specific 3D printing
  • Upon completion, participants will be able to consider alternatives to traditional ways of segmentation and leverage 3D printing and automation to create more personalized 3D models.
