3dMedLab makes a strong showing at #RACS18

The Austin 3dMedLab was out in force at the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists Annual Scientific Congress in Sydney recently.

With 3 posters and one presentation, 3D technology is certainly making its mark in the operating theatre and surgical management.

We were also very proud to see the strong focus on clinical leadership, communication and diversity. Continue reading “3dMedLab makes a strong showing at #RACS18”

3dMedLab on Seven News

In the lead-up to our presentations at the RACS Annual Scientific Congress #RACS18 we were interviewed by Georgia Main and Hope Wilson from Seven News Melbourne about our work in pre-surgical 3D printing. Our papers identified how medical 3D printing improves patient and carer understanding of their disease, leads to better satisfaction and engagement in medical care, assist surgeons to train for and plan complex surgery, and improve outcomes by reducing operating time, and blood loss.

Great to see our team featured like this — special thanks to Jas, Judy, Shanan and Nathan as well as Julia, David and Julie for working behind the scenes.

Planning for the 3dMed Australia 2018 Conference is well underway and we will be issuing a Call for Abstracts soon. If you are working on a 3D Printing, 3D Segmentation, 3D Modelling, 3D Visualisation, Virtual or Augmented Reality, Self-Built Simulation project or just something really cool in Biomedical Engineering to show off, please think about submitting!

We will be assigning worthy projects to Poster and Podium Presentations, so please be prepared for both.

Good luck, and start planning!

Better Care Victoria Proposal

OK, so we aren’t professional videographers… but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t passionate about expanding the use of 3D technology to improve patient care!

We’ve put in our submission to the Better Care Victoria Innovation Fund to build our 3D Medical Imaging service. This will improve the quality of our CT and MRI scans to show anatomy and pathology in 3D, and help us create better, more useful 3D prints for our patients and doctors.

Time to keep our fingers crossed and hope we get selected for funding!

49ers YPO Event – Rediscover Melbourne

Today we had the pleasure of speaking at the Australian YPO & 49ers event “Rediscover Melbourne” along with Professor Ravi Savarirayan (Paediatrician, Geneticist, Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, Victorian Clinical Genetics Service) and Professor Stephen Fox (Pathologist, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre).

The session was opened by Federal Health Minister the Hon Greg Hunt MP, and we covered a wide range of topics from personalised medicine, epigenetics, cancer biomarkers, tailored tumour immunotherapy, medical innovation, artificial intelligence and neural networks, 3d printing, and funding for medical research.

Thank you to Ken and Gail Roche, Craig and Caron Easton for inviting us, Peter Anastasiou for chairing the session, and special thanks to Lindsay Fox for a rousing speech.
