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.
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!
