3D Printing Registry Town Hall

March 9

11 a.m. (CT)

Registration is open for the RSNA/American College of Radiology (ACR) 3D Printing Registry Town Hall. 

The registry collects anonymized 3D printing case and procedure information with the goals of improving patient care and characterizing resource utilization. The 3D Printing Registry addresses the need for coordinated tracking of clinical 3D printing.

The Town Hall will answer common questions about the registry, including how to enroll, how to use the case submission form and how to report printing parameters.  Audience members are encouraged to bring questions.
