Amy Alexander

Alexander-Amy_160x160.jpgAmy Alexander is the Senior Biomedical Engineer in the Mayo Clinic Department of Radiology’s Anatomic Modeling Lab in Rochester, Minn. She uses advanced medical software to convert 2D radiological imaging data into 3D printed models. Her main focus is working directly with surgical teams to digitally plan a patient’s boney reconstructive surgery, and then design and print surgical cutting guides precisely aligned to that individual’s case. These patient-specific models/guides help surgeons prepare for, practice, and perform complex procedures. Additionally, the 3D models form a communication bridge for patients and families. Amy chairs the Engineering Education subcommittee of the Radiological Society of North America’s 3D Printing in Medicine Special Interest Group (RSNA 3D SIG), and is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineering’s (ASME) Medical AM Advisor Committee and the SME Medical Advisors Committee. She is also on the 3DMedLive 3D Printing in Surgery Annual Meeting Advisory Board. Amy holds a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering and a Master of Science in Engineering Management from the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE). She holds certificates in Additive Manufacturing from MIT and SME. In 2019, she was recognized as one of 14 international recipients of the SME Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer (OYME) award.
