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 […]

Aether is developing a from-CT scan organ 3D printing AI system

Aether, the biotechnology company behind the multi-tool Aether 1 3D bioprinter, is developing an artificially intelligent (AI) program for 3D printing organ models. Described as the “missing piece” in the wider, 3D bioprinting puzzle, Aether’s Automatic Segmentation and Reconstruction (ASAR) process will be capable of identifying different tissues in CT Scan data and converting the results […]

New 3D imaging techniques penetrate the heart of tissues for diagnosis

Researchers at the University of St Andrews in Scotland have discovered two new techniques for creating 3D images of internal, biological tissues. The non-invasive 3D scanning methods go deeper into tissue than ever before, and are capable of collecting a complete 3D image without rotating or taking multiple images of a specimen. The technology has many […]

Materialise and Siemens deliver 3D printing to the world’s radiologists

Materialise and Siemens Healthineers, a medical technology branch of the German conglomerate Siemens AG, have announced a collaboration to bring 3D printing capabilities to hospitals around the world. Together the partners will provide software necessary to make anatomical models using patient data, and add another dimension to the field of medical imaging. From the specialists […]

Phoenix Children’s Hospital translates cancer treatments using 3D printing

Technology’s greatest accolade is perhaps its ability to facilitate connections between people in pursuit of a common goal. When applied to medicine, the implications become particularly pertinent, especially considering the treatment of fatal and almost universally felt diseases like cancer. Digital imaging and 3D printing platforms have been developed with the expressed purpose of creating […]
