DR. RAFAEL BUNDOC , Professor, Section of Spine Surgery, Department of Orthopedics, University of the Philippines- Philippine General Hospital

The Amazing Applications of 3D Printing in Surgery (Aug 8, 11AM to 11:50AM)

Surgeons generally rely on routine radiographs, CTScans and MRIs to provide them two (2D)or three-dimensional (3D) images of disorders that they have to treat.

 Very often they use these images in creating a pre-operative template on how they will plan to operate on their patients. It has been their experience as well that sometimes they are confronted with much more complex intra-operative findings other than what they have conceptualized from images at hand. 

 This lecture will show how ordinary desktop 3D printing can give surgeons a detailed three-dimensional model for a more accurate pre-operative surgical templating.
