This entire beginner level course will be focused on getting ourselves comfortable with the Open Source and Free 3D Slicer Software, how to extract valuable patient specific information from Patient CT/MRI Scans and convert them to 3D Models that provide an extra dimension to imaging. We will also learn how to prepare these files for 3D Printing, so the manufacturing process is seamless. We will move onto explaining the different technologies in 3D Printing, how do you decide which technology to use based on its medical applications and in conclusion, we will share extended applications of the revolutionizing technology.
