Increasing Confidence in Congenital Heart Defect Intervention
About this webinar
Children with end-stage heart failure on the waiting list for heart transplant surgery face the highest mortality rate of transplantation candidates, with 17% mortality in a recent study. Innovative imaging techniques are needed to improve the safety and assessment of eligibility for the implantation of mechanical circulatory support (MCS) devices to safely prolong children's lives until a suitable organ becomes available. In a pediatric setting, using virtual fitting to assess the spatial stability for LVAD selection offers physicians increased confidence to treat congenital heart defects. Join Dr. Ryan Moore to learn how Mimics can be used to perform virtual fits for LVAD selection.

THINK Medical 3D Printing webinar series
THINK Medical 3D Printing is a series of short, focused webinars that highlights new approaches on how leading cardiologists use 3D visualization tools in their daily practice. Inspirational speakers share cases where 3D planning and medical 3D printing were a game changer. They demonstrate the value of holding a 3D-printed model in your hands for diagnostic purposes, surgical planning, and patient communication.
