As 3D printing at the point of care becomes more widespread, it is becoming evident how much value personalized care brings. In this article, we look at the highlights of 3D printing at the point of care so far this year.
At Rome’s Bambino Gesù pediatric hospital, the 3D lab has grown into a formidable support for the surgical teams. We spoke with Aurelio Secinaro and Luca Borro, two senior experts at the hospital. They testify to the many advantages of 3D reconstructions with Materialise’s Mimics Innovation Suite, software that helps with even the most complex of surgeries, such as a separation of twins with conjoined brains and vein systems.
There is no realistic training simulation training set-up for catheter procedures for children's hearts nor for congenital heart defects. Pulsating 3D-printed hearts using Mimics Innovation Suite could be the answer to address this need.
Personalized patient care is a reality in neurosurgery thanks to 3D printing. In this blog, we spoke to Dr. Julien Guevar, veterinary neurologist and neurosurgeon at the University of Bern, Switzerland, to discover why AM is changing the face of veterinary medicine.
FEops has grown from a small academic spin-off to an internationally recognized team of almost 40, with its latest CE-marked structural heart planning service available in the EU, UK, Canada, and Australia. But such growth does not come without its challenges. We spoke with co-founder and CTO Peter Mortier to learn how the FEops team used automated tools within the Mimics Innovation Suite to meet these challenges.
