3D Printing in Medicine: Improving Delivery of Healthcare

August 18, 2016
1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
Eastern Daylight Time


Three-dimensional (3D) printing has been long touted for the revolution it will bring to healthcare practitioners, researchers, and patients alike. In some cases, the reality has not met the hype that proceeded it. But there is technology today that can be implemented into a research hospital, medical school, or biomedical engineering program that can accelerate innovation, improve clinical care, and create efficiencies. During this webinar, Michael Gaisford, the director of marketing for Stratasys Medical Solutions, will review current applications of 3D printing that can change the way things are done in healthcare institutions.

After viewing this presentation, attendees will:

  • Understand the value proposition for 3D printing applications in healthcare.
  • Gain exposure to real-life use cases of institutions who have adopted 3D printing for patient care, training and education, research, and innovation.
  • Identify the tradeoffs of using 3D-printed training simulators for clinical education compared to current models.
  • Learn the technology available for different 3D printing applications.
