Wyss Institute applies “try before you buy” initiative to 3D printed heart valves

A team from the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, Massachusetts, have created a 3D printing workflow to predict the performance of artificial heart valves. A kind of “try before your buy” approach, the researchers have created a software that simulates a valve’s reaction with a patient’s native tissue, and provides accurate […]

Thanks to MIT and Harvard brains can now be 3D printed by the pixel

A collaboration between MIT’s Mediated Matter Lab and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University has yielded an image processing method that makes 3D printing patient-specific medical models a cinch. While accurate, and ready-sliced for 3D printing, manually processing MRI and CT scan data is a laborious process, typically done over the course […]

Stratasys introduce 3D printers to hospitals in five states to help US veterans

In an agreement with the US Department of Veterans Affairs Center for Innovation (VACI), Israeli 3D printer manufacturer Stratasys (NASDAQ:SSYS) is installing 3D printers in five …
