After a horrible attack, Carmen Tarleton was left nearly blind and burned beyond recognition. After over 60 operations, this woman was still left with more pain than she could bear. Almost 6 years later, she got the news she had been waiting for: a suitable donor had been found and she would get a new face. The team at Brigham and Women’s Hospital turned to the Mimics Innovation Suite software and 3D Printing to help plan this groundbreaking face transplant surgery.
Discover how Frank Rybicki, MD, PhD, Director, Applied Imaging Science Laboratory, is bringing 3D Printing to Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Dr. Rybicki will provide insight to the current clinical applications of 3D Printing and share his vision for the future direction of 3D Printing in hospitals. Also, hear how 3D Printing is playing a vital role in face transplants!
Many interesting research projects never progress beyond the planning stage due to lack of funding. That's why Materialise rewards the most innovative research that’s being conducted with the help of the Mimics Innovation Suite. Take a look at the winners of the 2014 Mimics Innovation Awards!
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.
