Coming soon to a hospital near you! 3D printing is a revolutionary technology that allows for the creation of objects with complex geometry and anatomy with unprecedented accessibility and ease. By developing anatomical models from patient-specific medical imaging for various treatment applications, medical 3D printing represents the next great leap in personalised medicine. In critical care, there are almost limitless possibilities for this new technology in simulation.
However, current barriers to the widespread adoption of 3D printing in medicine include the lack of expertise among clinicians, the perceived costs and perceived inaccessibility of this technology. In giving this talk, I hope to demystify 3d printing by sharing my step-by-step guide on starting a 3D printing lab, by sharing my experiences and journey with this technology. I’ll show you how you can start a 3D printing lab for less the average critical care physician’s annual coffee budget. Find me on Twitter @JasamineCB
