Course Description and Intended Audience
Collaborative 3D Printing in Medical Practice is a post-graduate course designed to update and introduce radiologists, surgeons, interventionalists, dentists, and administrators on uses of 3D printing of anatomic models. Creating accurate models of the anatomy contributes to improved postoperative results and increases surgical confidence in complex cases. It contributes to education at all levels of medical learners. Segmenting and printing techniques and practical application in medical care, research, and education will be reviewed. Surgeons and clinicians from various disciplines will share their Mayo Clinic experience detailing the benefit of the models to their medical and surgical practice.
Collaborative 3D Printing in Medical Practice is designed for physicians including radiologists, surgeons, and dentists interested in learning about 3D printing in medicine.
