December 21, 2017 — Philips recently announced agreements with 3D Systems and Stratasys, two global leaders in the 3-D printing industry, to help progress patient care and improve the clinician experience. Advanced 3-D modeling provides radiologists with additional views to help strengthen anatomical knowledge which could enhance clinical impact in reviewing complex, multi-disciplinary cases.

IntelliSpace Portal 10 is the first advanced visualization platform to feature an embedded 3-D modeling application for creating and exporting 3-D models intuitively into the clinical workflow. A suite of clinician-focused rendering and editing tools from across IntelliSpace Portal 10 applications helps assure the model reflects the true patient anatomy.

Through interfacing with IntelliSpace Portal 10, Philips customers will now have a virtually seamless connection to 3D Systems and Stratasys solutions to expedite 3-D printing to create models to help radiologists understand patient anatomy that is difficult to visualize and deliver personalized medicine in the most unique, complex cases. Users can create the model in IntelliSpace Portal 10, save the data and easily transfer the data to the 3-D vendors' solutions without leaving the clinical environment.

3D Systems’ precision healthcare capabilities include virtual reality simulators, 3-D-printed anatomical models, virtual surgical planning, patient-specific surgical guides, instrumentation and implants. Their solutions help to speed care and treatment and reduce costs. The collaboration with Philips will offer a comprehensive clinical workflow for radiologists.

Stratasys is a supplier of applied additive technology solutions, from 3-D-printed surgical planning models and medical device prototyping to advanced education and training. Stratasys' PolyJet-based full-color, multi-material 3-D printing solutions drive high-quality realism. Interfacing with Philips, customers can now rapidly design, order, and produce 3-D-printed anatomical structures on-demand from Stratasys Direct Manufacturing.

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.
