    3D Systems launches D2P virtual reality technology to help precision medicine


    The industry-leading virtual reality software promotes the visualization of digital 3D models based on patient scan data
    3D Systems and Philips cooperate to jointly promote the development of 3D printed medical models

    Chicago, Illinois, November 27, 2017-At the RSNA Annual Conference & Exhibition of the Radiological Society of North America, 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD) released a new D2P (from DICOM to printing) technology aimed at Help clinicians and radiologists quickly create accurate 3D digital anatomical models from medical imaging data.

    At the same time, 3D Systems will show customers how to use its end-to-end additive manufacturing solutions to optimize the design and change the medical workflow during the RSNA exhibition (Booth 1717) from November 26 to 30.

    The industry's first mass virtual reality software

    3D Systems announced the launch of industry-leading virtual reality (VR) technology that allows doctors to upload patient scan data to D2P, and immediately present medical data in virtual reality, without the need for time-consuming preprocessing and segmentation of the data. This is similar to the result displayed on a high-end imaging workstation, but compared to the standard flat screen display, which is shown through virtual reality.

    Visualization in virtual reality greatly enhances the three-dimensional understanding of structure and scale, and can be used as part of routine inspections or for preoperative planning. This new technology is now part of the integrated application of 3D Systems D2P.

    Cooperation with Philips to promote the development of 3D printing models

    3D Systems announced the signing of an agreement with Philips to accelerate medical progress in improving planning and patient prognosis. Philips seamlessly docks with 3D Systems, which can accelerate the 3D printing process and create physical 3D models faster, helping doctors understand patient anatomy that is difficult to visualize, and providing personalized medicine for the most unique and complex cases.

    At the RSNA annual meeting, 3D Systems will display patient anatomical structure models made with three materials. Each model is printed using different technologies, including structures printed using biocompatible resin materials and SLA light curing technology. model. These models can be disinfected.

    Evan Caffey, Chief Medical Doctor of Plastic Surgery at Montefiore Medical Center, said: "In the past decade or so, 3D printed patient anatomical models have become more and more common. From preoperative planning to using models as surgical guides, These tools make complex procedures more streamlined and accurate. With the birth of D2P software, we now have advanced software and 3D printers, which will be promising in the medical field. This is the beginning of a new era of personalized medicine and surgery combined with 3D printing ."
    3D Systems will collaborate with radiologists, surgeons, medical staff, medical equipment manufacturers and medical teaching staff to provide them with a series of precision medical solutions, including virtual reality simulators, 3D printed anatomical models, VSP (virtual Surgical planning), patient-oriented surgical guides, instrumentation and implants.
    Kevin McElla, Executive Vice President & General Manager of 3D Systems' Metal and Medical Solutions Division, mentioned: "3D Systems will continue to provide the medical industry with increasing demand and help better medical judgments and smoother Innovative adaptive tools for working processes and better results. Our innovative precision medicine and medical 3D printing solutions will provide medical staff with methods and technologies to overcome today’s challenges and advance the pace of medical technology.
