3D Technology in (oral) Healthcare

The application of 3D imaging and 3D planning is rapidly growing within daily clinical practice.

3D virtual surgery planning and computer assisted surgery have proven to increase the predictability and accuracy of surgical procedures.

Also in the training of nurses, doctors and surgeons, the 3D technology often offers added value.

This session will illustrate how new technologies such as 3D imaging and 3D printing can be used to optimise patient care.

The focus lies on how healthcare will continue to change in the coming years, following new developments such as augmented relaity and artificial intelligence.

These new possibilities mean that care and treatment can be tailored to the patient's wishes and situation. Treatments will take shorter, fewer operations will be needed, with better quality and faster patient recovery.
