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.
With percutaneous devices and new procedures impacting today’s clinical market, interventionists and scientists alike are experiencing the need to plan complex interventions in 3D. Learn from Nicolo Piazza, MD, PhD how the Mimics Innovation Suite has become an integral tool for planning complex structural heart interventions, from advanced 3D anatomical analysis to cutting-edge 3D Printing of patient-specific cardiac models.
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.
