Dr. Philipp Brantner is a radiologist at the University Hospital of Basel, Switzerland. In April, he presented his case study, "Hospitals and 3D labs. Why, how and what now?" at the 2017 Materialise World Summit in Brussels. His inspiring talk centered on his experience in deploying and running an in-hospital 3D printing lab at the Basel University Hospital together with his team. He shared fresh and useful perspectives on implementing a new workflow, its successful outcome, and how to keep the lab sustainable.
