IBAS researcher is awarded TSANZ prize in 2021

Dr Anna Ridgers is awarded TSANZ prize

Dr Anna Ridgers, Respiratory and Sleep Physician and IBAS Associate Researcher, was awarded a prize for the best oral presentation for the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand Interventional Pulmonology for her work on the TREE (three dimensional radial EBUS educator) project.  

This work was a collaborative project between the Austin Department of Respiratory and Sleep Medicine, IBAS and the Austin 3D MedLab. This involved the development and manufacturing of a 3D printed model of the bronchial airways.  The model was then used as a simulation tool for radial EBUS procedures at a training evening for Victorian trainees in respiratory medicine.

The tool was found to improve the trainee’s ability to be able to successfully complete the procedure without the need to “practice” on real patients.  Ongoing prototyping is underway with a further training program and validation of the updated model planned at a national level in 2022.
