Materialise Partners With Formlabs for Complete 3-D Printing Solution

December 4, 2017 — Materialise and Formlabs are collaborating to deliver a complete, cost-effective and easy-to-use solution for hospitals looking to start an in-house 3-D printing lab. The new offering combines the Materialise Mimics inPrint medical imaging software with Formlabs’ Form 2 professional-grade desktop 3-D printers. The components of this complete 3-D printing package facilitate the implementation of patient-specific care at an affordable price-per-print for quick return on investment.

The financial, educational and clinical benefits of 3-D anatomical models for communication and surgical planning have been documented and discussed for years. However, the perceived barriers to developing an onsite 3-D print lab, including setup costs and high costs per part, have deterred some hospitals from employing this emerging technology.

As the use of 3-D anatomical models rapidly progresses in the medical field, it has become a standard procedure and valuable tool for communicating complex surgical plans with patients. Once hospitals have adopted on-site 3-D printing, they are able to easily scale their operations as demand for anatomical models grows.

Artificial Intelligence Provides Faster, Clearer MRI Scans

A new artificial-intelligence-based approach to image reconstruction, called AUTOMAP, yields higher quality images from less data, reducing radiation doses for CT and PET and shortening scan times for MRI. Shown here are MR images reconstructed from the same data with conventional approaches, at left, and AUTOMAP, at right. Athinoula A.
