Dec. 12 webinar to examine 3D printing for vascular imaging


Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) members can learn some of the ins and outs of three-dimensional (3D) printing for vascular imaging at a webinar on Dec. 12.

The SVS’ Health Information Technology (HIT) Committee is sponsoring the webinar, which begins at 6 p.m. CST.

With 3D printing, vascular surgeons get a replica of a patient’s unique vascular anatomy—from heart valves to blood vessels—before performing open surgery on endovascular procedures. “This offers the vascular surgeon increased detail to optimize the procedure and patient outcomes,” said Judith Lin, MD, chair of the HIT Committee.

She and Adam Johnson, MD, will moderate the webinar. Topics will include, among other topics, a 3D printing overview and presurgical planning using 3D modeling. There will be time for questions and discussion.
