3D printing for Paediatric Anatomical models
3D printing for dummies. A how-to guide for 3D printing in simulation: Jasamine Coles-Black
Coming soon to a hospital near you! 3D printing is a revolutionary technology that allows for the creation of objects with complex geometry and anatomy with unprecedented accessibility and ease. By developing anatomical models from patient-specific medical imaging for various treatment applications, medical 3D printing represents the next great leap in personalised medicine. In critical care, there are almost limitless possibilities for this new technology in simulation.
However, current barriers to the widespread adoption of 3D printing in medicine include the lack of expertise among clinicians, the perceived costs and perceived inaccessibility of this technology. Jasamine demystifies 3D printing by sharing a step-by-step guide on starting a 3D printing lab, and sharing her experiences and journey with this technology. I’ll show you how you can start a 3D printing lab for less the average critical care physician’s annual coffee budget.
Dr Jasamine Coles-Black is a Vascular Research Fellow at Austin Health, where she is a founding member of 3D Med Lab. She received her Doctor of Medicine from the University of Melbourne in 2016. Her research interests are in the emerging applications of 3D printing in the medical field. Jas is on a crusade to upskill fellow clinicians on the art of medical 3D printing, and raise public awareness of the technology via traditional and social media channels.
