Get Involved with the Latest Technology
The 2017 UK ADT Group conference and workshop showcases the current research in head and neck reconstruction and offers participants a hands-on approach; it is a unique chance to test the latest technologies for themselves.

Invaluably, this opportunity will help all attendees to better understand how such technologies can be effectively implemented to ultimately improve healthcare outcomes.

Present Your Work
UK/European groups or individuals are invited to submit presentations and/or posters demonstrating how advanced digital technologies are being used or developed in areas such as:

  • head and neck reconstruction
  • medical imaging
  • training and simulation
  • functional outcomes
  • custom and osseointegrated implants
  • biomaterials/nanotechnology
  • bioprinting
  • prosthetics
  • other areas of research related to 3D printing, computer aided design etc. for biomedical applications
  • healthcare economics


Format
Day 1: Conference
Comprising of several presentations addressing both research into and the application of advanced digital technologies in head and neck reconstruction. 

Day 2: Workshop
Hands - on. Gain experience on a range of computer aided planning, 3D scanning, design and 3D printing technologies.

Organizing Committee
This UK conference is organized by the Surgical & Prosthetic Design team at PDR International Centre for Design and Research, Cardiff Metropolitan University and the Maxillofacial Unit at Morriston Hospital, Swansea.

Since 1998, the Surgical & Prosthetic Design team at PDR has undertaken parallel developments of academic, application-led research, enterprise and education in head and neck reconstruction. As a result of its continued collaboration with the UK NHS and its associated research, the team was awarded the highly prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education in 2016. 

The Maxillofacial Unit at Morriston Hospital is a UK pioneer in the application of computer technologies for craniofacial implants and prosthetic reconstruction.  It was one of the first in the UK to introduce the use of digital technologies into routine clinical practice.
