3D printing is opening new doors of possibility in the design medical devices and the modification of existing devices. Leveraging the body's ability to heal and combining it with biocompatible materials, shapes and designs will make the next generation of medical devices a reality. Explore the ways in which 3D printing in the aerospace and automotive industries are now revolutionizing the design and manufacture of medical devices. Also included in this video is a showcase of sample devices.
Join 3D printing expert Amy Alexander as she showcases the use of AR and VR apps in Mayo Clinic’s Department of Radiology in their advanced anatomic modeling laboratory. Learn about the 510(k)-cleared applications, 3D surface scanners and 3D printers used by Mayo Clinic at the point of care. Amy also explores the manner in which radiological data like CT or MRI imaging can be segmented to isolate anatomies and pathologies of interest in order to achieve segmentation that can be converted into digital 3D mesh for display in VR or AR or for print via 3D technology. “Try-it-yourself” app download instructions are included in the presentation.
