Innovation and Success in 3D-inspired Development of the Business and Clinical Practice
Originally Aired: December 7, 2017
CME/CE is not available for this on-demand webcast. This webinar is supported by an educational grant from Philips Healthcare
Statement of Purpose
Development of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, led by Administrators and Physicians was developed with quality and broad application to clinical service in mind. The lab is staffed by 2 full time senior level technologists who bring their intimate understanding of cross sectional anatomy and technical knowledge of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging.
Since its inception the scope of work produced in the 3D Innovation Lab has grown dramatically from simple bone and vascular surface renderings to production of complex anatomical segmentation, surgical and interventional procedure planning, research and development of software upgrades, and assessment of organ and tissue physiology and function. Nearly all clinical disciplines – Cardiology, Neurology, Oncology, and Surgical Specialists – rely upon the virtual and print 3D modeling which originates in the 3D Innovation Lab.
This webinar is designed to teach participants how to plan and implement their own successful 3D Lab business, including business plan development, personnel choices, image acquisition, post-processing protocols, and clinical examples to illustrate the breadth of pathology and how 3D modeling impacts patient care.
Upon completion of this activity participants will be able to:
- Describe key components for developing a business plan for a 3D Lab
- Review valuable components for successful personnel development
- Explain how to optimize CT and MRI image acquisition and develop post-processing protocols
- Discuss the approach involved with engaging buy- in from key clinical services
This activity is intended for radiologists, radiology techs, cardiologists, neurologists, oncologists and surgeons.
