Presentation: 3D Printing for Improved Planning and Patient Outcomes
Innovative hospitals utilize 3D printing to enhance clinical preparedness, dramatically improving patient outcomes. Whether creating educational anatomical models or preparing for the most challenging cases, physicians utilize 3D printing to translate patient scans into physical models leveraged for numerous applications. Using real patient data, these multi-material 3D printed medical models simulate numerous tissue types in a single, patient-specific print, effectively demonstrating target pathology characteristics by including all features necessary to convey key concepts. With boundless applications, including clinical education to surgical planning preparation, and simulation, 3D Printing is revolutionizing traditional clinical practices.
