This event is intended for hospital staff in the following areas:

  • Clinical scientists
  • Orthopedic surgeons and consultants
  • Medical imaging specialists
  • Radiologists
  • Orthognathic and reconstructive surgeons
  • Clinical engineers
  • Cardiovascular specialists
  • Pediatric specialists

3D technology has been transforming healthcare for over 20 years. It’s been used in applications from designing and producing custom devices and instruments, to planning complex clinical procedures and training future medical professionals more effectively. And that’s just the start.

But nothing of those achievements would have been possible without the support of a medical community sharing their experiences and inspiring each other to apply 3D technology and enable patient-specific healthcare.

Be a part of this community and join us for this event offering inspirational sessions, peer-learning and networking opportunities.

 

“I'm on mission to start a 3D lab at the hospital, so this course was spot on for me.”
Jan Magne Gjerde, St. Olavs Hospital, Norway
