Fast Radius, a provider of digital manufacturing solutions, has partnered with medical 3D printing firm, Axial3D , to produce a high-quality, high-volume, and high-speed ‘DICOM-to-print’ service for surgeons and hospitals across North America. As a result of the two companies collaborating, clinicians across the United States, Canada, and Mexico will be able to receive enhanced insights for the creation of precision surgical plans, in more detail than is currently possible when relying on 2D imaging for this.
The insights will reportedly be provided in the form of micro-millimetre accurate, patient-specific 3D anatomical models, which are produced from the patient’s own 2D scans, and then shipped to the surgical team within 48 hours. Why 3D printing? 3D printing enables a new standard of imaging and additional insight into the patient’s anatomical detail. The models can also be held in the surgeon’s hands and fully assessed. This allows surgeons to […]
