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.
