    New podcast: ‘3D Tissue Models in Health Care’ 

May 17, Episode 7: '3D Tissue Models in Health Care'  

Find out how 3D printing techniques play a key role in developing tissues that could be implanted into humans. In this episode, Cathy Wurzer, a broadcast journalist from Minnesota Public Radio, talks with two noted experts in the field of 3D printing in medicine. They explore technological advancements, in-house printing, reimbursement challenges and applications in surgery to improve patient care. 

Guests are: 

“The end goal is the patient. The needs of the patient. 3D printing is one tool that we’ve learned to harness the power of the technology to provide better outcomes for the patient. There’s nothing more than precision medicine wants to do than that.” - Dr. Morris 

  • Peter Liacouras, Ph.D., Director of Services for the 3D Medical Application Center, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center 

“There are a lot things that are exciting about this field from the machines to the materials to the speed to which they print to some of the AI algorithms that will eventually take over some of the segmentation for us.” - Dr. Liacouras
