Structured Education

Course Description And Objectives:


  • Learn how 3D printing can assist in surgical planning of pituitary tumors.
  • Understand how CT, MRI, and PET images are used to create 3D models.
  • Better understand the different 3D printing methods and which one’s produce better results for anatomical printing.

Course Description

Pituitary adenomas can give rise to a variety of clinical disorders and surgery is often the primary treatment option. Learn in this course how a 3D patient-specific anatomical model based on a challenging clinical case was created by segmenting the pituitary gland, pituitary adenoma, carotid arteries, and bone using contemporary PET/CT and MR images. The 3D anatomical models were printed using VP, MEX, MJ and PBF 3D printing methods and were spatially accurate of the anatomical structures.

This activity may be available in multiple formats or from different sponsors. A self-learning activity can be completed only once per biennium.
