3D MEDICAL PRINTING CONFERENCE

29 - 30 January 2018

 10.5 CME Points

Overview

The global use of 3D printing in the medical field is rapidly expanding, with many experts now appreciating the remarkable benefits it can offer, from increasing productivity and cost-effectiveness, to improved success rates in many complex surgeries. Despite these benefits, there are still significant clinical and regulatory challenges to overcome, along with the ongoing knowledge gap and scepticism surrounding its clinical use, particularly here in the Middle East.

The 2018 edition of the 3D Medical Printing conference, now CME accredited, will provide a global perspective on the key challenges involved in the implementation of medical 3D printing practices in a variety of settings. The reality of the technology will be discussed, offering an accurate view on the state of research and when anticipated emerging technologies such as bioprinting will be available. Regional and international case studies from a range of clinical specialties will be presented highlighting how it is revolutionising healthcare from greater accuracy in surgical planning to improving efficiency through shorter surgical times.  

What are the main topics covered in this event?

  • 3D printing in surgical planning
  • 3D printing in medical education
  • Bioprinting
  • Competing and complimentary technologies
  • Multidisciplinary case study session
  • Regulatory affairs 

Benefits of attending

  • Assess how 3D printing is being used in surgical planning to improve the accuracy of procedures and reduce surgery time
  • Discuss the regulatory affairs surrounding the use and implementation of 3D medical printing in the UAE to ensure the highest levels of patient safety
  • Evaluate multidisciplinary regional and international case studies to discover how 3D printing can offer solutions in situations where there are no other options, saving lives and enhancing patient care
  • Discover best practices surrounding the decision to use 3D printing for patient specific implants determining cases where the technology will offer real value add to the patient, surgeon, hospital, and health insurance fund
