Brief Bio: Dr. Liacouras is the Director of Services of the 3D Medical Applications Center within the Department of Radiology at Walter Reed. He is also the Co-Director of the DOD/VA 3D Printing Consortium for Medical Applications, as well as an Assistant Professor of Radiology and Radiology and Radiological Services & Naval Postgraduate Dental School at the Uniform Services University of the Health Sciences.
Abstract: The 3D Medical Applications Center at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center utilizes an array of digital and additive technology to improve the care and well-being of our wounded warriors. Over the past decade, the 3D Medical Application Center has evolved from supplying pre-surgical models and custom implant templates to providing custom titanium implant, surgical guides, facial prosthetics molds, prosthetic attachments, assistive technology devices, and simulation task trainers. There are many aspects of a wounded warrior’s care and life that may require a device not currently on the market. Additive manufacturing allows each provider the freedom to work with a design team to tailor an implant or device to meet their overall objectives and more importantly the patient’s needs. This presentation will highlight some the past and recent achievements of the 3D Medical Applications Center, as well as, future initiatives.
