#3dMedAu18 Metrics

OK, we know it’s not a competition but, hey, seriously? Thanks @Symplur for the data — and thanks to all our wonderful convenors, conference organisers, and student volunteers.

Thanks to our 3dMed team who have pulled off an amazing conference.

Countdown to #3dMedAu18 — Speaker Profile: Jen Owen

With five whole days left to go before the 3dMed Australia Conference, we are proud to welcome Jen Owen to Australia in order to speak at #3dMedAu18.

Based in Washington state, Jen is founder of the ground-breaking Enable the Future project (e-NABLE) — a philanthropic, multinational, collaborative and grassroots-driven effort to make open-source, self-assembled designs for prosthetic hands and arms which can be 3d-printed at the point of care. This project inspired Austin Health prosthetist Jake Eadie to develop a 3d-printed prosthesis program as part of 3dMedLab.

The 3dMed Australia Conference 2018 is dedicated to exploring the use of 3D technologies in Medicine including 3d-printing, 3d-modelling, virtual reality and augmented reality. Register now to attend, media enquiries welcome.

3D Printing for Quality and Safety in Healthcare

Can you see us in the background???

The @3dMedLab team was super pumped to present our work at the International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre this week. Supported by the BMJ, Institute for Healthcare Improvement, Safer Care Victoria and many others, we were proud to represent Austin Health by sharing how we use 3D Printing to deliver personalised and patient-centred healthcare.

3dMedAu18 Call for Abstracts Open!

Submit your abstract now!The 3dMed Australia 2018 Conference abstract submission is now open. Please make sure that you read the Abstract Submission Guidelines before making your submission using the Electronic Form by the Close of Business on Friday 31 August 2018.

We welcome papers in the following areas:

  • Clinical Applications of 3D Imaging & Analysis, 3D Modelling or 3D Printing (including Bioprinting)
  • The Medical Industry, Technology and Clinical Interface: Collaboration, development and commercial issues in the growing 3D MedTech Industry
  • 3D Medical Technologies for Patients and the Community: Exploring how 3D Technologies are influencing society, community and trends in patient care. We encourage these papers to be targeted for a diverse and non-scientific audience.
  • Simulation and Teaching: The use of 3D visualisation, modelling, and printing for simulation and education of clinicians, patients, and medical device development.
  • Regulation and Ethics: Managing 3D datasets, software models and additive manufacturing can be a minefield for regulatory authorities and existing intellectual property legislation. Share your insights into how we are navigating this Brave New World.
  • Virtual and Augmented Reality: Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality hardware is now at a tipping point of reliability, affordability, and adaptability with rapid growth in its application in teaching, simulation, clinical care and therapy.
  • Other: There are plenty of topics which we are sure we have not thought of. Please demonstrate your innovation and enthusiasm by leading us into the unknown unknowns of 3D Medical Technologies!

We will be assigning worthy projects to Poster and Podium Presentations, so please be prepared for both, and make sure that you read our Submission Guidelines.

Good luck, and start writing!

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”

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.

 

3d Med Symposium 2017 Wrap-Up

            

The Australian 3dMed Symposium 2017 (#3dMedAu17) was held on Friday 25th August at Austin Health to a packed audience covering a wide range of topics in 3d Modelling, 3d Printing, and Virtual Reality in Medicine and Surgery.

The all-day program was opened by Frank McGuire MP, Victorian Parliamentary Secretary for Medical Research and featured numerous high-profile speakers from clinical medicine, basic sciences, engineering, and industry.
