The Role of 3D Printing and "On-Screen" Surgery in the Repair of a Series of Complex Encephaloceles
by Janjay P Prabhu | MBBS, FRCR Staff Pediatric Neuroradiologist and Co-Director, SIMPeds 3D Print, Boston Children's Hospital, MA
Reconstructing virtual anatomical models enables clinical teams to evaluate different treatment options that entail better surgical plans and allow surgeons to proceed with post-op simulations.
Radiology has the capability of guiding surgeons in their surgical planning. The value of 3D anatomical models can truly be experienced by seeing the additional information and advanced visualization that is provided to the surgical team.
Watch this webinar and see real cases in which Dr. Prabhu uses the many advantages of 3D visualization and printing.
In this webinar, you will learn
- What are the operative challenges in repairing encephaloceles and other skull defects?
- What is the evolving role of 3D Printing in complex encephalocele repair?
- How surgical planning is evolving through the use of 3D Printing: before, now and in the future?
- How to apply these principles to other rare cases of complex procedure?
