Technology that allows you to convert CT and MRI images to 3D models
3d modelling provides an extra dimension to imaging and open a better perception of patient-specific examination.
Why 3D modelling
3D printing and additive manufacturing
Thanks to 3D printing and additive manufacturing medical companies can create exact patient-specific models. The key aspect is that the preparation of 3d model must be fully automatic – on the other hand, the basic requirement is to ensure the maximum precision of such a printout to reflect the patient’s anatomy as accurately as possible.
We have experience working on precise STL (stereolithography, standard triangle language creation) for 3D printing.
High precision mesh generation
Coronary vessels are tiny structures whose segmentation requires special techniques. One aspect relates to the high precision reconstruction of complex geometry. We use state-of-the-art algorithms to generate and process meshes, including conversion from a sparse, high-resolution representation of voxels using VesselEngineTM. Our data is ready for both physical modelling and visualisation tools.
3D mesh modeling and analysis
Efficient implicit mesh representation
3d Mesh modeling and analysis
Mesh reconstruction is based on an interplay between an anatomic prior: vessel walls should be straight and noisy image data. Below we show an example of a analytic tool allowing for explicit verification of mesh deviation form ideal segmentation. Vector field show placed where the mesh deviates from maximum of gradient module.
