Saving Time in Your Medical Image Segmentation Process with Mimics 19
When segmenting medical image data, have you ever struggled with separating two bones from each other? Well, you’re not the only one!
Designing a Patient-Specific 3D-Printed Cast with the Lightweight Structures Module
A talented team of engineers at Michigan Technological University has developed a method for creating a patient-specific 3D-printed cast to treat bone fractures of the forearm and wrist. The project leverages Materialise’s Lightweight Structures Module which was used to create the high porosity lattice structure of the casts.
Towards a widespread clearance of 3D-printed medical devices worldwide
“Materialise software has aided us with the image processing, design and validation of the patient-specific implant“, said Felipe Marques, CEO of Brazil BioArchitects. The FDA clearance is not easy to obtain and an important factor in speeding up the procedure was the use of 510(k) cleared software in the implant design process.
Anatomy Education at its Best: Printing and Painting Replicas of Donor Hearts
What do donor hearts and 3D Printing have in common? The answer to this is the University of Minnesota’s Visible Heart® Lab. Not content with simply teaching their students with 2D images, the team at the lab has moved their academic approach to a whole new level: 3D models of real human hearts.
