Francis LeBouthillier, Faculty of Art, Making Digital Matter:  From Analog to Digital & Back Again

This presentation will include new developments from Francis’ Making Digital Matter Surgical Training Fetus Project. This project involved the development of a series of fetal models that were created directly from MR and CT scans employing the technologies of 3D printing. Francis will also present a series of fetal and maternal models used to simulate fetal anomalies to provide surgical training for a group of international surgeons at the recent Fetal Growth Conference hosted by Mount Sinai and the University of Toronto. This body of work represents the culmination of over 16 years of research, development and collaboration with fetal surgeons and researchers.

Coffee and light snacks will be served.
