Engineering at the point-of-care with 3D Printing
By Amy Alexander (Mayo Clinic)
Each year, over 1.3 million patients from all US states and more than 150 countries are seen at one of the Mayo Clinic facilities, known for its highly specialized medical care. Many of them are referrals from other hospitals. Join us in this webinar as Ms. Amy Alexander will give you key insights into how to successfully implement 3D Printing at the point-of-care using Mimics Innovation Suite. Moreover, they will highlight the newest features of the image-based 3D medical software that enabled Mayo Clinic to advance the planning workflow.
In this webinar, you will learn more about:
- The unique 3D planning workflow that enables delivery of highly specialized medical care.
- How to implement 3D printing at the point-of-care in a safe and effective way.
- Key features and updates of the Mimics Innovation Suite planning software that benefit anyone who wants to engineer on anatomy.
About the speaker
Amy Alexander is a Senior Biomedical Engineer in the Mayo Clinic Department of Radiology’s Anatomic Modeling Lab in Rochester, Minnesota (United States).
