Stratasys, a polymer 3D printing solutions supplier, has expanded its anatomic modelling capabilities for healthcare professionals with the launch of Digital Anatomy Creator, a new software module for Stratasys Digital Anatomy 3D Printers.

The new program allows users to customize the internal structures of their prints and alter material formations to create patient-specific anatomic models that is a direct representation of a patient’s pathologic and biologic architecture.
Healthcare practitioners are under increasing pressure to provide more individualized treatment and ensure better surgical operation outcomes, lowering costs and reducing time spent in the operating room.
Providers can now deliver patient- and pathology-specific anatomic models printed with materials that mimic human tissue, allowing healthcare providers to use the anatomic models for diagnostic purposes, to develop hyper-personalized treatment plans, and to better prepare for surgical procedures by incorporating 3D-printed anatomic models into their practice.
Printers with a variety of uses
Medical models can be printed on Stratasys Digital Anatomy printers for a variety of uses, from diagnosis to patient education.
Users may tune their printers’ materials to match their anatomic model demands with the Digital Anatomy Creator, allowing them to explore, customize, and build ultra-realistic models that behave and respond like the real thing.
Furthermore, Digital Anatomy Creator allows users to create, replicate, and share designs for patient-specific anatomies across a community.
“The Digital Anatomy Creator is the missing link between the patient, the printer, and the final printed 3D anatomic model,” said Seth Friedman, PhD, manager of innovation, imaging, and simulation modelling at Seattle Children’s Hospital. This new program has allowed us to personalize our anatomic models to a mind-blowing degree,
allowing us to deliver individualized care to each of our patients, which is critical.
In addition to the Digital Anatomy Creator,Stratasys is working with Synopsys Simpleware ScanIP Medical and Materialise Mimics inPrint to certify its Digital Anatomy and J5 MediJet printers for use in FDA 510(k) certified medical modelling workflows.
These certifications allow Stratasys clients access to workflows for diagnostic anatomic modelling and make point-of-care 3D printing more accessible.
Stratasys printers are helping to focus on realistic 3D medical models
“We continue our journey towards accessible, accurate, and realistic 3D medical modelling by deepening our structural pathology flexibility with the introduction of the Digital Anatomy Creator module and validating our digital workflow with third party segmentation software with FDA 510(k) clearance,”said Osnat Philipp, vice president, healthcare for Stratasys.
Our technologies enable providers to provide best-in-class healthcare,
resulting in improved outcomes and a new level of care.”
