The 3dMedLab is still beavering away – our most recent publication is a systematic review of 3d printed phantoms for AAA and EVAR. Thanks again to Dr Jasamine Coles-Black, Prof Damien Bolton, Mr Domenic Robinson, and A/Prof Jason Chuen.
You can find it online whilst we wait for a paper publication date!
Our MD Research Project students have been hard at work again and we are proud to announce another publication. Students Michael Jiang and Gordon Chen have published their systematic review of 3d printing for orthopaedic preoperative planning in the ANZ Journal of Surgery. The study, co-supervised by orthopaedic surgeon Mr Andrew Hardidge, concludes that there is clear evidence for the use of 3d printed models to improve intra-operative metrics (such as operating time) and patient understanding and engagement.
