  • Titanium Medical Implants Maker seek Australian Rebates

    Titanium Medical Implants Maker seek Australian Rebates

    Melbourne neurosurgeon Paul d'Urso and founder of Anatomics had been making customized 3D print cranial implants such as custom sternum and ribcage for cancer patients. But the Australian Private Funds have denied rebates as the 3D printed implants are not regulated or listed on the federal government's Prostheses list. They are looking forward for more support so that the industry would be able to process Australia's abundant titanium into the inks and powders used in 3D printing.

  • CADskills Titanium 3D Printed Implants Is the Solution to Bone Atrophy

     CADskills Titanium 3D Printed Implants is the solution to Bone Atrophy

    CADskills, a medical device startup from Belgium uses 3D Printing Technology to produce patient-specific implants for craniomaxillofacial (CMF) and neurosurgery patients, including its innovative AMSJI, a new generation of subperiosteal implant for extreme maxillary atrophy. To counter bone atrophy, AMSJI eliminates the bone grafting process and its months of recovery time and the surgery takes around 1 hour. These Titanium implants are 3D Printed using Mimics Innovation Suite (MIS) from Materialise.

  • 3D Printing Course For Augmented And Virtual Reality Shows Promises For Surgical

     3D Printing Course For Augmented And Virtual Reality Shows Promises For Surgical

    A 3D Printing Course Additive was released by Researchers from US and Canada, further strengthening the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2018 Hands-On 3D printing course, which aims at creating 3D Printed cranio-maxillofacial (CMF), orthopaedic, and renal cancer models using 3D Printing, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). The image processing was provided by Mimics inPrint, allowing the researchers to fabricate anatomic regions of interest from the DICOM data. Three cases were followed: Pelvic fracture, Mandible tumour and Kidney tumour where 3D printed models were used to plan the pre-operative as well as reduce time and increase efficacy of the surgeries.
