On May 9, Dr. Tim Brown, Consultant Transplant Surgeon, and axial3D, medical 3D printing experts, will share the story of a life-saving, world-first operation made possible through 3D printing, and explore what the future holds for the technology.
Participants will hear the story of a patient; who urgently needed a life-saving kidney donation, the patient’s father, who was willing to donate but had a tumour on his kidney, and the AI technology that made it possible to conduct the transplant safely. Participants will also have a unique opportunity to ask questions of the team in a Q&A session at the end of the discussion.
Hosted by Nigel McAlpine, Immersive Technology Lead at Digital Catapult NI, the 45-minute session will explore the impact that 3D printing has already made for surgical teams and their patients.
The team will also share with delegates how Machine Learning is being utilized to complete labor intensive and complex tasks to create functional 3D models from 2D scans.
If you’ve ever wanted to understand the genuine impact 3D printing can deliver for patients and surgeons, now is your chance to find out! 25% of surgeons are set to use 3D printing to plan for surgery in the next two years, and medical 3D printing is expected to grow to become one of the major trends in the global 3D printing market by 2023.
Join the team on May 9 to find out why this technology is making waves in the medical sector and how you can utilize it to provide better patient care at your healthcare institution.
