Point-of-Care 3D Printing:
From Scan to Personalized Treatment in Hospitals

September 17, 2019 | King’s College London, UK

To us, 3D printing is not just a production method. It has sparked major innovations in industries across the board, including medicine. 3D planning and printing has enabled clinicians to go from scan to personalized treatment including patient-specific, 3D-printed anatomical models, manufactured directly at hospitals: the Point-of-Care.


Are you a surgeon looking for a way to bring 3D printing into your surgical planning, training or patient consent? Are you a healthcare professional with questions about how to set up a 3D planning facility in your Hospital? 

At this course you will hear about case studies from pioneering surgeons and researchers who are already utilizing this technology in their practice, plus panel discussions and a great opportunity to network and share expertise.

As one of the leaders in the 3D printing field, Materialise invites you to join us and discover how you can implement this technology in your medical facility for cutting-edge patient care and to advance research. In addition, you can find out how these tools can be used across a hospital to easily connect with teams in different departments.

We will start the day by hearing from clinical experts who will explain the ins-and-outs of how they use this technology for their complex cases today. In the afternoon we will have hands-on sessions so you can learn how to use new tools and techniques yourself.



Take a close-up look at how clinicians are using 3D planning and printing for specific cases and get hands-on training on how you can use tools and techniques in your medical facility



Hear how others have built a business case for implementing in their medical facilities and have set up a workflow across departments.



Network with industry leaders and ask your 3D printing questions to experts, whether you’re an early-stage adopter or a seasoned user.

Visitors will discover:

  • Recent 3D printing success stories and case studies
  • Where to start with introducing 3D printing to your hospital
  • Best practices, pitfalls and solutions in setting up your own Point-of-Care 3D printing facility
