Operationalizing 3D printing at point-of-care
by Sarah Flora, the Program Director of Radiology’s 3D Lab at Geisinger Medical Center
Mimics Innovation Suite is the most complete and advanced suite of image segmentation, digital design and communication software making it an ideal solution for point-of-care 3D printing. As such, it has been cited in more than 14,000 peer-reviewed articles and it is the preferred solution in more than 80% of medical device companies and hospitals. Mimics is uniquely cleared to print anatomical models for medical use when used with a certified 3D Printer.
- Be introduced to use cases for medical 3D printing at the point-of-care that are successfully being used at Geisinger Medical Center today.
- Become educated on ways to capture value in point-of-care medical 3D printing in order to justify funding a hospital-based program.
- Gain a broad knowledge of operations at Geisinger Health System’s 3D Lab and keys to their success.
