Medical 3D printing registry grants opportunity for data collection at the point-of-care
The Radiological Society of North America (IL, USA) and American College of Radiology (VI, USA) have announced the launch of a new medical 3D printing clinical data registry.
Medical 3D printing will soon benefit from the first clinical data registry as the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA; IL, USA) and American College of Radiology (ACR; VI, USA) have announced a new opportunity for data collection at the point-of-care of clinical 3D printed models.
A joint ACR-RSNA committee will reportedly govern the registry, with pilots scheduled for Autumn 2019.
William Weadock, Professor of radiology at the University of Michigan (MI, USA) and Chair of the RSNA 3D Printing Special Interest Group, explained: “The creation of the joint RSNA-ACR 3D Printing Registry is essential for the advancement of clinical 3D printing. The registry will allow us to collect data in support of the appropriate use of this technology and its value in clinical decision making, and this collaboration between RSNA and ACR shows the importance of 3D printing to radiology.”
