3D MODELLING SERVICE

We provide service for high quality 3D modelling according to your request

We provide services for generation of medical 3D models and 3D printed models. Upload CT or MR images and let our experts perform segmentation work and deliver either digital files or printed models.

Our personnel have expertise in both medical anatomy, image analysis and 3D printing. We understand your clinical question and ensure you rapidly get high-quality models to support your clinical work.

Benefits

  • Reduce cost. Patient specific models shorten surgical time. Average cost for surgical room including personal is about 60 USD per minute. Reduce cost by fewer complications by shorter anastesia and better precision.
  • Patient satisfaction. Better explain the procedure to the patient by using patient-specific model.
  • Gain speed and expertise. By working with our experts you quickly reach your goals and have the ability to learn directly from experts.
  • Put your clinic in the front-line of innovation and provide patient-specific care.
  • Scientific evidence for cost efficency and improving clinical outcome using 3D printed models [1].

Application example

The applications and case examples below have been performed in close collaboration with a wide range of clinicians at Skåne University Hospital and their 3D print lab. Follow their amazing work on twitter.

Cardiovascular

The main application of 3D printed models in the cardiovascular field is wide and common usage are:

  • Understanding complex congenital heart disease
  • Planning interventions in GUCH patients (Grown-up with Congenital Heart disease)
  • Ensure that devices fit for valve replacement
  • Prepare valve sparing surgery

Case example
8 month boy with congenital heart disease. Double outflow right ventricle and a challenge with a ventricle septum defect in the outflow tract.

The ventricle septum defect was hard to visualise on both CT and ultrasound. Printed 3D model helped in surgical planning and significantly shorted the surgical time. The circulation was succesfully converted to a two chamber system. Heart was printed 50% larger than true size to facilitate model discussions.

Neurosurgery

Common 3D print applications for neurosurgery are

  • Bone cement moulds for cranioplasty
  • Anatomical models for complex vessel malformations
  • Cutting guides for complex skull deformations such as fibrotic dysplasia, dermatoid tumour, etc.

Cranioplasty
Together with neurosurgeons at Skåne University Hospital, Medviso have developed software to create moulds for bone cement cranioplasty.

Advantages:

  • Faster surgery (about 30 minutes)
  • Better anatomical fit
  • Improved work environment by moulding in separate part of operating theatre and no need for grinding hardend bone cement

Maxillofacial

Maxillofacial is the area where the usage of 3D printing have come furthest. Common applications are:

  • Bone cement moulds for cranioplasty
  • Anatomical models for complex vessel malformations
  • Cutting guides for complex skull deformations such as fibrotic dysplasia, dermatoid tumour, etc.
  • Wafers for ortognatic surgery

Orthopedics

The application of 3D printed models in orthopedics is very wide and typical applications are:

  • Models to prebend plates for complex surgery such as pelvic surgery
  • Surgical planning for scoliosis
  • Planning resection of bone tumours and subsequent reconstruction
  • Mirror non deformed bones to prepare for osteotomy surgery

Case example
6 year old boy and with severe scoliosis.

Model was used to plan surgery and specifically which ribs to split before attempting to straightening the vertabrae column.
