In addition to these workshops, Materialise Founder and CEO Wilfried Vancraen addressed the event’s 3-D Printing Special Interest Group, discussing evidence-based medicine and the use of 3-D-printed anatomical models, guides and implants as the new standard of patient care.
Additional Materialise activities during the RSNA Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting included:
- Mimics software was featured in RSNA’s 3D Printed Education Area;
- Materialise launched AnatomyPrint, an online solution for creating 3-D-printed anatomical models from STL files; and
