3D printing got its start in the 1980s, and while its functions vary by industry, perhaps nowhere is its potential more exciting than within the medical community. Join us as we review a case study from Children’s Hospital & Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska, highlighting how 3D printing is used to manufacture medical devices and improve patient outcomes.

This presentation will provide an overview of 3D printing in medicine, how we got here and where the future is headed. We’ll discuss applications of 3D printing, everything from modeling and prototyping to patient-specific devices and bioprinting. We’ll also review the many types of 3D printing methods. Plus, participants will learn about the benefits of in-house 3D printing, including turn-around time and cost.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the evolution of 3D printing, as well as its current and future applications in medicine.
  • Define additive manufacturing and its impact on innovation.
  • Learn about current uses of 3D printing, including anatomic modeling, rapid prototyping, patient specific devices and bioprinting.
  • Review printer options, including FDM, SLA, Polyjet, CJP.
  • Discuss anatomic modeling, e.g., image acquisition, segmentation, 3D modeling, printing and post-processing.
