3D Printing in Hospitals

3D printing already has many applications in hospitals and medicine. But what does it actually mean for the hospital? It’s not just as simple as ordering a 3D printer and that’s it, you can start using it in the operating room.

It is a cross-sector multi-disciplinary complex situation, involving both medical and technical fields – design, new workflows, working with other professionals from different fields and more.

During 3D Medical Printing Conference & Expo 2020 we will organise a dedicated session in which specialists from various fields will share their opinions and experience about bringing 3D printing to academic and non-academic hospitals. Confirmed speakers during the session:

  • Vera Lagerburg, Medical physicist, OLVG (Onze Lieve Vrouwen Hospital), Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on “3D printing – from idea to clinical practice”
  • Holger Jahr, Head Biomaterials & Molecular Musculoskeletal Research, Uniklinik RWTH Aachen
  • Chris Arts, Associate professor Translational biomaterials research, Maastricht University Medical Centre Dept. Orthopaedic Surgery
