The end of November is approaching and with it, one of the biggest medical events of the year: RSNA. Hosted by the Radiological Society of North America, this event is an opportunity for radiologists across the world to get up to date with the latest innovations and evolutions in the field of radiology. One such innovation is 3D Printing – here’s what attendees can look forward to for this year’s edition.

The Materialise 3D Print Lab

Learn how we can support 3D Printing in your hospital

Visitors to our booth will be able to get their first taste of the possibilities of 3D Printing for radiology. You’ll be able to discover how we can support your 3D Printing journey from start to finish at our 3D Printing Lab tour at 10:15 am daily – and get an idea of how 3D Printing can be integrated into your hospital environment with displays of live printers and the software needed to run them.

Software is of course essential for running a 3D Printing Lab. We’ll also be giving daily Materialise Mimics demos at our booth at 2:00 pm daily, where you can learn how to convert your DICOM images into a 3D printable anatomical model in just five steps.

Freddie, the 3D-printed skeleton

Get hands-on experience

There will also be a series of hands-on 3D printing workshops where attendees will be able to get experience with our Medical 3D Printing software. The focus will be on Materialise Mimics inPrint, which is used to create 3D printed anatomical models, and attendees will become familiar with the possibilities of the software, learning how to:

  • Process cross-sectional images
  • Identify and segment anatomical parts
  • Manipulate and refine anatomical models
  • Apply tools and techniques
  • Use standard 3D printing file formats

Meet Freddie, a 3D printing fan at heart

And finally, we’ll be welcoming a special guest at our booth: Freddie, the 3D-printed skeleton. Freddie is completely 3D printed from head to toe and features a variety of our 3D printing solutions. From his customized skull implant, to patient-specific surgical guides which fit his leg bones perfectly, you’ll be able to learn about the wide range of medical applications 3D Printing is used for.

We also have some exciting announcements which will be revealed during RSNA – stay tuned for more news!

Visit us at Booth 7932 during RSNA, from November 26 to December 1. Learn more and register for our workshops and 3D Printing Lab tours on our event page.
