SUrgical Simulation Software for 3D Printing
Surgery planning is the preoperative method of pre-visualizing a surgical intervention, in order to predefine the surgical steps. It is a common practice for planned surgical interventions as it enables the prior determination and modelling of the risk regions, seeking to obtain the best outcome with fewer risks for the patient. This process can be further enhanced by using a 3D printer to make exact replicas of organs that doctors can use to plan surgery, and even do practice operations beforehand.
SUSS 3DP is a medical software with a on-line 3D printing interface. The surgeon delineates and segments the anatomy to be printed from CT or MRI images, and sends the data to an on-line service for 3D printing of the organ that would be delivered to his installations within days.
