We seem to be humming along through 2021 with more publications in the works. Our latest is this article published in a Frontiers in Surgery Special Edition from Dr Jasamine Coles-Black, Prof Damien Bolton and A/Prof Jason Chuen reviewing the role of 3D Printed Vascular Models. Make sure you check it out!
It’s 2021 and Happy New Year 🎉 to all of our friends around the globe! We kick off the year with another publication — this time in the European Journal of Vascular Surgery.
Read all about the great work of Dr Jasamine Coles-Black, Prof Tracie Barber, and A/Prof Jason Chuen in this collaborative project between Austin Health, The University of Melbourne and the University of New South Wales!
Despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Austin 3DMedLab has been beavering away on multiple fronts. You can read about our efforts in COVID-19 related 3D Printing at The University of Melbourne’s online magazine, Pursuit.
What a great way to start the new year! Congratulations to our MD Research Project students Gordon Chen and Michael Jiang who have published their systematic review of 3d Printing in Otolaryngology Training, together with collaborating co-supervisor and ENT surgeon Dr Deb Amott. If you need a current summary of the state of play of 3d printed models for ENT training and simulation then first take a look here at The Journal of Laryngology and Otology.
This update takes an international flavour as we head off to Hamburg, Germany for the European Society for Vascular Surgery Conference.
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.
