While medical opinions may be used to substantiate or refute claims, they are subjective based upon surgical experience, procedural comfort and training of the medical expert. This program will address the use of data driven testing in patient specific scenarios to acquire test results related to the performance of medical devices and the visualization methods available in conveying this message to a jury. The program will highlight several testing and visualization case examples with practical application to litigation scenarios.
In-vitro testing can be used to substantiate, or refute, medical opinion based on derived data
Mechanical testing using clinically relevant conditions (in-vitro testing) can reveal device performance characteristics which can be visualized
In-vitro tests can be tailored to specific scenarios
Surgical procedure deviations may be evaluated and subsequently animated
