WhiteClouds, the world’s largest full-color 3D printing cloud provider, today announced the launch of 3DyourSCAN, a life-size color printed, anatomical model of a patient’s CT/MRI scan designed to improve collaboration and education between physicians and patients. More than 230 million surgeries are performed each year. WhiteClouds anticipates their patent-pending “Hinge & Slice” feature will provide the most granular, detailed patient-specific models available to surgeons for collaboration and patient education.
Leading 3D printing and advanced medical imaging companies partner
Parallel to the development of this technology is a partnership announcement between WhiteClouds and TeraRecon, the leading software provider in advanced visualization. Through this partnership, medical experts will have the ability to print highly-detailed patient models directly from the TeraRecon software, a platform with over 4,000 installations worldwide. This workflow provides 3D printing and cloud-based 3D reconstruction seamless and turn-key.
Medically related projects already make up 15 percent of annual 3D printing industry revenue according to a recent UPS / Consumer Technology Association (CTA) study. With the 3D printing industry set to value at $21 billion by 2020 (according to the same study), 3D printed medical services and devices are on target to become a bigger and bigger part of the 3D printing landscape moving forward.
Physical 3D modeling changes the ways clinicians work
WhiteClouds’ new patent-pending “Hinge & Slice” reproductions are the next-generation in 3D printed medical models. Through its proprietary 3D-as-a-Service (3DaaS) platform, WhiteClouds has the largest full-color production capacity with the ability to produce models quicker than any other provider.
Enabling Healthcare Systems, Hospitals and Physicians to 3D Print Today
The partnership between TeraRecon and WhiteClouds, world leaders in 3D technologies, is now providing the next generation of healthcare innovation. WhiteClouds’ 3DYourSCAN is offered in 190 categories of personalized medical models which are also available through other partner channels like Anatomy Warehouse.
