MedScan3D increases choice of anatomical models

Galway based MedScan3D has announced the expansion of its range of anatomical models, cementing its position as Ireland’s leader in this fast growing market.

With the adoption of 3D printing solutions becoming more widespread than ever, stakeholders within medical technology have recognised the advantages of utilsing 3D printed products to address a whole range of R&D requirements, particularly the benefits offered by 3D printed anatomical models.

In addition to supplying anatomical models to a number of leading Irish medtech organisations including Boston Scientific, Medtronic, Abbott and NUIG, MedScan3D have also seen a surge in demand for the related R&D services that the company offers. This includes working closely with clients from the early product ideation stage, CAD design, 3D printed prototyping and final product development.

MedScan3D also provides clients the ability to convert CT scans into 3D printable files using cutting edge D2P (Dicom to Print) technology. The company then provides 3D printed products from these files by leveraging the 3D printing expertise of its sister company 3D Technology Ltd.

According to MedScan3D Technical Director Jacqui O’Connor this comprehensive product offering is allowing the company to provide a unique and valuable service to its clients. “Our ability to assist clients through every step of the R&D journey has allowed us to create really rewarding relationships with some of Ireland’s leading medtech companies. From concept idea right through to 3D printed prototype we are working closely with clients to drastically reduce their development time and cost.”

In addition to working closely with Ireland’s thriving medical device sector, MedScan3D’s anatomical models have also seen particularly strong take-up for training and educational applications. The models provided by the company are anatomically accurate and are allowing improved medical training and pre-surgical planning amongst the medical community in Ireland.

Having established itself as Ireland’s leading provider of anatomical models, MedScan3D has also launched an expanded range of products categorised by both Anatomy or by Procedure, with a diverse choice of accessory products also available. According to O’Connor, classifying the models along these lines has made it more intuitive for customers to find the exact model they require.

Anatomical models classified by anatomy

“By offering such an extensive choice of anatomical models to our customers, it’s important we make their selection process as seamless as possible. Central to that has been the categorisation of models according to the particular area of anatomy or, in some cases, the particular procedure that is being planned.”

Visitors to the MedScan3D website can now view models whether they be cardiovascular, endovascular or neurovascular to name just a few. Likewise, customers can search by procedure such as arterial disease, coronary procedures or structural heart and valve.
