Virtual Surgical Planning
VSP® (virtual surgical planning) technology is a market-cleared, service-based approach to personalized surgery, combining expertise in medical imaging, surgical simulation, and 3D printing. The surgeon brings clinical knowledge and a desired surgical plan to an online web meeting with a 3D Systems biomedical engineer to simulate and plan the surgical procedure. The outcome is a digital plan that is transferred to the operating room including accurate, 3D-printed, personalized surgical tools, templates, and models.
Medical Device Design and Manufacturing
3D Systems offers high-end 3D printing services for metal implants and instrumentation used for orthopedic, spinal, craniomaxillofacial (CMF), dental, and veterinary applications. Medical device companies rely on expertise and direct metal printing (DMP) capabilities to guide them from prototyping and trial series to large-volume manufacturing.
Medical image data is the foundation of highly-accurate, patient-specific anatomic models that can be made in a variety of materials to support patient education and surgical planning. These include sterilzable and non-sterile options, depending on need.
The 3D Systems Simbionix product line is at the forefront of virtual reality (VR) medical simulation. The training simulators offer clinicians the most realistic hands-on experience to master critical skills and ensure procedural efficiency without patient risk.
Dental Manufacturing and Design Services
3D Systems is the ideal partner in digital dentistry for labs, dental distributors, and OEMs. Its unique, high-end manufacturing technology ensures perfect fit, function, and aesthetics for all dental prostheses, whether cemented, removable, or implant-retained.
D2P (DICOM to PRINT)
D2P® stand-alone, modular software is designed to address and consolidate all 3D model preparation steps. It relies on automatic segmentation tools that minimize the effort and time associated with the creation of a digital, patient-specific model. D2P software is used by medical staff for pre-operative surgical planning and allows export of 3D digital models in various file formats that can be used by numerous applications.
