Virtual reality (VR) and 3D print are being employed in healthcare with fantastic results. These emerging technologies make a way to create anatomical models that help surgeons prepare for complicated procedures. At the point of care, 3D models help patients better understand their diagnoses and procedures, in language laypeople can understand. Stephanie Starks, Founder and Co-Director of Heart Effect, can attest: A 3D model helped save her daughter’s life. Translating DICOM imaging to 3D printed models and VR leads to faster surgeries with less risk of infection and quicker recovery – a double win for patients and clinicians alike.
In this webinar, learn how to:
- Apply 3D printing and VR at the point of care to reduce surgery times, thereby lowering the risk of infection
- Compare and contrast 3D printing applications at the point of care with appropriate reimbursement models
-Understand how 3D printing and VR have the potential to show improved patient comprehension in informed consent for surgical procedures
