An audience member asked about using Virtual Reality.



Moderator David Cassak asked the panelists if smaller hospitals will use advanced technologies like 3D Printing or just large organizations like Cleveland Clinic.



The last question was about the future of 3D printing and where the opportunities are. The panelists discussed the various materials being used and researched (silicon for bones for example), software and apoplications.
