Point-of-Care 3D Printing: From Scan to Personalized Treatment in Hospitals
By Dr Michael Wagels, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon at Princess Alexandra Hospital
3D planning and printing has enabled clinicians to go from scan to personalized treatment including patient-matched, 3D-printed anatomical models, manufactured directly at hospitals: the Point-of-Care.
In this webinar, you will hear from Dr Michael Wagels, a pioneering surgeon and his Multidisciplinary Team at Princess Alexandra Hospital, on their experience in setting up and implementing a 3D planning service in the hospital and the value it provides to their patients.
What you’ll learn in this webinar:
Understand the major considerations for implementing 3D Printing in Hospital
Be introduced to use cases for medical 3D printing at the point-of-care that are successfully being used at Princess Alexandra hospital today
Gain a broad knowledge of operations at Princess Alexandra Hospital’s 3D Lab and keys to their success.
