Press release: 3D Medical Conference & Expo 2019 at MECC Maastricht

Maastricht – On January 30 and 31st, 2019, MECC Maastricht will host a two-day event focused on the latest 3D Printing innovations in medicine. The event will include a conference with dedicated sessions to 3D pharma printing, 3D medtech printing, 3D bioprinting, 3D printing applications in surgery and dentistry, lab tours and demo corners and an exhibition.

On January 30, the program includes dedicated sessions on 3D Bioprinting and 3D Dental Printing. Attendees will find out the current status of designing biomaterials for tissue regeneration, custom-made 3D printed dental implants, smart materials for 3D dental printing, bioprinting of tissues and organs & will understand why 3D printing is a must have for the production of certain dental applications.

The program of this day will also include a MERLN Institute for Technology-Inspired Regenerative Medicine Lab Tour.

On January 31, the focus during the 3D Medical Printing Conference will shift towards 3D medtech printing (orthopaedic implants, surgery models) and 3D pharma printing (How far are we from 3D printing our medication?). Dedicated sessions to Value-Based Health Care by implementing 3D technologies in regular hospital practices and Use of Surgical guides using 3D Printing / Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality will provide insights into how can this new technology find its place in the current health system.

For instance, Alessandro Ricci from 3DIFIC, Italy, will present a case of a previously non-treatable tumour that was successfully treated using a 3D printed solution. Mohamed Alhnan from King’s College London will talk about how 3D printing can be used to personalise medicine dosing so that it is tailored to an individual patient’s needs and preferences.
