Blog: Transforming MRI and CT scans into 3D Models

Being able to create accurate medical devices that are closely matched to a patient’s unique anatomy requires precision imaging, measurements, and design. A critical part of PrinterPrezz’s unique medifacturing™ workflow is our process of turning magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans into a 3D CAD image that can be manipulated and used for 3D printing.

PrinterPrezz employs a team of experienced orthopedic surgeons that work with innovation hospitals. MRI and CT scans can be given to us more securely and quickly, ultimately speeding up the process of producing an effective implant. In the early stages of our workflow, we utilize Synopsys’s Simpleware ScanIP. Our surgeons and engineers are able take MRI and CT scan data from the hospital and perform analysis and segmentation—effectively taking the solid scan data and slicing the structures up layer by layer. This allows us to “see into” the 3D scans and apply unique modeling techniques. It is the first critical point in the workflow.
