Daily experience with 3D printing in a general hospital

The medical 3D lab at Medisch Spectrum has become a recognized and permanent part of the organisation. It was founded in 2018 and is organized from the department of Medical Technology & Clinical Physicists, serving over 10 departments. We work with a team of healthcare professionals, including Technical Physicians and Biomedical engineers.
