December 19, 2016 — Materialise NV showcased the benefits of 3-D-printed anatomical models for radiologists and their patients during the 2016 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting, Nov. 27 – Dec. 2 in Chicago.

During the event, the company’s Mimics inPrint software was on display in four workshops introducing the process of converting Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) imaging into a 3-D-printed anatomical model. During the workshops, attendees learned to use Mimics software to facilitate development of 3-D printing platforms within their hospitals.

In addition to these workshops, Materialise Founder and CEO Wilfried Vancraen addressed the event’s 3-D Printing Special Interest Group, discussing evidence-based medicine and the use of 3-D-printed anatomical models, guides and implants as the new standard of patient care.

Additional Materialise activities during the RSNA Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting included:

  • Mimics software was featured in RSNA’s 3D Printed Education Area;
  • Materialise launched AnatomyPrint, an online solution for creating 3-D-printed anatomical models from STL files; and
  • Materialise announced the winners of the 2016 Mimics Innovation Awards, presented annually to researchers who use Mimics to further their profession and the medical industry.

Carestream’s X-ray digital tomosynthesis functionality creates three-dimensional datasets from digital radiography (DR) that can be scrolled through similar to computed tomography (CT) imaging. It received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2020. Digital tomosynthesis uses a single sweep of X-ray exposures and streamlines operator workflow by separating the process of DT exposure acquisition from image volume formation.
