Materialise introduces HeartPrint

Additive Manufacturing and 3D printing pioneer Materialise has launched a new 3D printing service for patient-specific cardiovascular models from medical image data called HeartPrint

The proposition behind this launch is that quality 3D printed models of patient-specific cardiovascular anatomy are useful — and valuable — assets to researchers, interventionists, educators, marketing professionals and sales team’s alike.  Materialise, via its HeartPrint service, plans to offer a continuously expanding library of ‘off-the-shelf’ 3D printed anatomical models as well as a service for patient-specific models printed from DICOM images (CT or MRI).  Thanks to 3D Printing technology, these models are able to combine a range of rigid and flexible materials of varying transparencies in a single print, replicating more than just the shape of a patient’s anatomy.
