Digital Approaches to Veterinary Clinical Planning
About this webinar
3D planning and printing enhance the services provided by veterinary centers and provide additional tools when it comes to pre-surgical planning. In this webinar, a complete workflow will be shown, from the segmentation of anatomical models to designing cutting guides. It will conclude the webinar, there will be a live Q&A session between the audience and speakers.
What you will learn
- How to create anatomical models from images in Mimics Innovation Suite from live demonstrations with Arsham Khayatpoor from Materialise
- How Vet3D uses these anatomical models to virtually design animal-specific cutting guides which are then used in theaters with Bill Oxley and Heather Goodrum from Vet3D
- About research on anatomical measurements and how it can help deliver better surgical outcomes with Matthew J. Allen
Founder of Vet3D and an RCVS Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon
Bill Oxley founded Vet3D in early 2015 following the development of the necessary CAD and 3D-printing techniques. This allowed for virtual orthopaedic and neurosurgical procedures, design of surgical guides, and the 3D-printing of bones and guides for clinical use. Guide system development is an ongoing process supported by active clinical research and feedback from colleagues at referral centers in the UK, Europe, and further afield. Bill has an RCVS Specialist diploma in orthopaedics.
