MMI Keynote | Rise of Point-of-Care Manufacturing: Impacting More Patients with 3D Printing
Wednesday, April 25 | 8:30 am – 9:45 am
The use of 3D printing has impacted patient care for many years, from anatomical models to new patient-matched devices. 3D manufacturing in the clinical setting has risen in the last few years supported by advancements in machines, materials, software, and awareness. As a leader in medicine, Mayo Clinic has also become a leader in point-of-care manufacturing, establishing their first 3D printing lab in 2006. Combining the diverse expertise of medicine and engineering, the Mayo team has experienced substantial benefits while addressing many challenges. Join us to learn how point-of-care manufacturing is providing patient care advantages, presenting unique obstacles of engineering within a hospital, creating the need for collaboration across disciplines, and impacting the lives of many patients and their families.
The Mayo Clinic 3D Printing/Anatomic Modeling Laboratory produces over 700 anatomic models per year for complex surgical care, multidisciplinary care of complex patients, presurgical simulations of patient specific vascular and non-vascular procedures, custom device creation, and medical and patient education.
