3D Printing in Hospitals Forum 2022
3D technology has been transforming healthcare for over 20 years. It’s been used in applications from designing and producing personalized devices and guides, to planning complex clinical procedures, and training future medical professionals more effectively. And that’s just the start.
For our annual event, we are gathering the most inspirational minds working with 3D printing in hospitals. Join our in-person Europe and Middle East (EMEA) focused event for presentations, work sessions, networking opportunities, and much more!
Tickets are still available at € 525 (VAT included)!
Last chance to register is May 31st.
Payment is only possible via PayPal or credit card.
The most important takeaway is hearing about the diverse ways that patient care has been impacted in all different institutions and seeing the same similarities in how 3D printing can improve patient care. It really drives home that you can be your local champion — to go home and start using it to impact your local patients.

Adjunct Faculty, Dept of Radiology, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH
2022 Chair of the RSNA Special Interest Group on 3D Printing
Across the globe, there is an accelerating trend toward hospitals taking control of the 3D printing production of devices to assist in personalized surgery. The driving forces behind the transition from industry-provided devices to devices made in-house varies by locale. Stakeholders in this new ecosystem include the surgical specialties, radiology and hospital administrators. Sustainability in the long term for these personalized surgery tools produced at the point of care will demand reimbursement. It is somewhat amazing that reimbursement is still sparse considering that many of these workflows are now considered clinical standard of care and have been in use for more than two decades. The need for collecting data and examining clinical efficacy and patient impact still exists and will drive this next wave of innovation in this area.
