RSNA 3D Printing Symposium

Take advantage of a unique learning opportunity and join the RSNA 3D Printing Special Interest Group (SIG) for the RSNA 3D Printing Symposium, presented at RSNA 2021.

Attendees will learn more about starting a 3D printing lab, the 3D printing registry and regulatory considerations for 3D printing in hospitals. Plus, expert faculty will provide additional insight on 3D printing in the clinical setting, including surgical planning, materials for use in human tissue contact and other tips and tricks.

Date: November 27
Time: 12:30–5 PM Central Time (CT)
Location: Lakeside Center East, Level 3, Room E350 | McCormick Place
CME: 4.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits
