November 22, 2016 — Carestream is highlighting the results of its collaboration with Materialise NV by showcasing a Web-based 3-D printing service, AnatomyPrint, at the 2016 Radiological Society of North America conference, Nov. 27-Dec. 1 in Chicago. AnatomyPrint generates 3-D anatomical models from STL files.

Materialise is a provider of additive manufacturing software and advanced 3-D printing solutions in the medical and industrial markets. Their new printing service will integrate with Carestream’s Clinical Collaboration Platform (video link) to export segmented data as STL files. Materialise can use these files to generate detailed 3-D printed models for healthcare providers, which equips them with easy access to certified 3-D printing.

Three-dimensional printing is currently being used in a variety of medical applications, ranging from training to diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Many centers are starting up their own 3-D printing activity and are looking for access to the technology. In this new collaboration, Materialise and Carestream are providing easy access to high-end 3-D printing services from their existing clinical workflow.

Materialise experts create 3-D anatomical models using a variety of materials, technologies and colors. With continuing advances in computer and 3-D printer technology, it has been possible to develop more realistic models of the human body in recent years.
