Finding out that you are going to have a baby may be one of the happiest days of your life. Sadly, for one family in New York, the joy quickly turned to fear and uncertainty when they found out their baby would be born with a complex form of congenital heart disease. Having already diagnosed the condition in the womb, the doctors at NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital had time to plan how they would save the baby’s life before it even began with the support of a HeartPrint model and the Mimics Innovation Suite.
Interventional procedures continue to grow in complexity, often requiring a multidisciplinary team of clinicians. HeartPrint can help break down the barriers of communication and identify the best clinical approach. Utilize imaging data to its full potential by taking it off the computer screen and putting it in the hands of the heart team. Learn from our guest speaker Dr. Evan Zahn, MD how 3D Printing is being used to plan complex interventional procedures at Cedars Sinai.
Materialise invites you to join one of our upcoming two-day Mimics Innovation Courses. Next to hands-on training sessions and demos, we will provide you with interesting lectures, giving you in-depth information and updates of the latest trends and technologies in orthopaedic, craniomaxillofacial, cardiovascular and pulmonary R&D. Get in touch with our engineering experts for possible collaborations in the future!
In the new Mimics Innovation Suite release, you can for the first time combine X-Ray images with 3D models, drastically increasing the available clinical data for all sorts of engineering purposes, without increasing the scan cost or exposing patients to unnecessary radiation. Watch our X-ray webinar to learn how HSS and Zimmer use the new X-ray Module to increase clinical relevance.
