3D Printing Human Cells Today for 3D-Printed Living Organs Tomorrow

What would the world be like with 3D-printed organs made from real human tissue? Researchers at the Sabanci University in Turkey took us one step forward to this reality as they were the first to 3D print anatomically accurate aorta cells. To achieve this accuracy, the group of researchers used Materialise’s Mimics Innovation Suite software to use the patient’s MRI data as input for a 3D reconstruction.

TLEMsafe: Modeling Patient-Specific Musculoskeletal Mechanisms

Materialise is participating in the TLEMsafe Project, a follow-up project on the development of the Twente Lower Extremity Model (TLEM), a musculoskeletal model used to predict muscle and joint reaction forces during movements. The main objective of TLEMsafe is to integrate this musculoskeletal model with the patient's MRI to simulate the surgery and thus predict functional recovery. The project aims at increasing the chance of performing limb-salvage surgery by improving the safety and predictability of complex musculoskeletal surgery using a patient-specific navigation system.

3D-Printed Heart Model Helps Surgeons Save Baby’s Life

Materialise played a pivotal role in helping surgeons save a baby boy’s life through the use of a 3D-printed heart model. Together with Dr. Dydynski, Chief of Pediatric Radiology at Kosair Children’s Hospital, Materialise used the Mimics Innovation Suite to generate an optimized 3D model of the myocardium and prepared the file of the child’s heart for 3D Printing.
