Want to see something cool? Visit the latest edition of Colorectal Disease to see our Video Vignette: Fully robotic retroperitoneal lymph node dissection – a fusion of technologies where we combine a digital 3d-model with robotic surgery to guide the surgeon to the right location. Thanks to our collaborators Dr Atan Das, Dr Toan Pham, A/Prof Nathan Lawrentschuk and Mr Satish Warrier from the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre Department of Surgery.
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”
It’s Australia Day and we are pleased to announce that yet another @3dMedLab paper has been accepted for publication. Thanks to the hard work of Dr Todd Manning and our team, “Three dimensional models in uro‑oncology: a future built with additive fabrication“ is now available in the World Journal of Urology.
You can read the paper here: http://rdcu.be/FxYM
It explores the positive and negative impacts of novel medical devices. More importantly it also features an article from our own Mr Jason Chuen!
Read all about the role of 3D Printing here at “3D Printing in Medicine – a Transformative Technology“.
It has taken a while, but our review paper on 3D Printing in Medicine has finally been published in the Medical Journal of Australia.
