The Use of 3D-Printed Pelvic Models for Complex Acetabular and Femoral Reconstructions
About this webinar
Brian Haus, M.D., a Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon, talks about how he is using 3D-printed medical models to prepare for hip surgeries and how the use of these models give him new insights. During the webinar, he demonstrates two case examples and shows us how preoperative 3D scans helped him to plan using the Materialise Mimics software. When the analysis and planning were all done, he takes us through the process of printing the models and using them before and during surgery for these specific cases.
What you will learn
- How radiographs vs. 3D images differ from each other for a particular case and why Dr. Haus feels that CT scan images have only limited reliability
- What preoperative planning looks like and how Dr. Haus uses the different software modules, measurements, and views to analyze a specific case
- The three reasons why he found the 3D-printed models to be useful and helpful
- Why Dr. Haus says he not only had good results but even had fun using the models
