International Journal of Artificial Organs . The researchers, led by Giovanni Biglino, PhD, from the University of Bristol in the U.K., hosted a 1.5-hour 3D printing training session at the 2018 Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) and EuroCMR joint meeting in Barcelona, Spain, for an audience that included radiologists, cardiologists, technologists, physicists, and bioengineers. The course provided an overview of medical 3D printing, as well as details regarding the full 3D printing workflow, current software and technology options, and predominating cardiovascular applications. The lecturers also presented a wide range of 3D-printed heart models based on MRI or CT scans while discussing several case studies. “I think heart models can really provide insight for both the clinical team and for patients (and their families), so they are very versatile tools,” Biglino told . “They can be complemented by other types of 3D technologies, such as virtual reality, but […]
