What is the stage of 3D printing implementation in hospitals?

An increasing number of hospitals across the world started to adopt 3D printing programs, aiming to improve quality, reduce lead times and to personalize patient care.

The 3D printing market can be categorized as medical implants, surgical guides, surgical instruments, hearing aids and personalized medical products. The medical implant segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate among all applications in the coming years.

While the benefits of 3D printing implementation in hospitals are recognised, the process is challenging in complex ways. At 3D Medical Conference & Expo (February 4-5) in Maastricht, during the 3D printing in (Non) Academic Hospitals session (February 5), the speakers will share their experiences: do’s and don’ts, how to start, multidisciplinary collaboration, legal issues and more. Below you can find the list of speakers during the session and the titles of presentation.
