MINNEAPOLIS & REHOVOT, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Stratasys (NASDAQ: SSYS), a global leader in applied additive technology solutions, today announced the company is further advancing the impact and use of 3D printing in medical modeling by signing an agreement with Philips. The agreement includes virtually seamless interfacing and dedicated workflows across Philips IntelliSpace Portal 10 and Stratasys Direct Manufacturing's parts-on-demand service – allowing a broader range of medical professionals to improve training, research and surgical planning through 3D printing.
By interfacing with Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, Philips clinical informatics and data management customers can rapidly design, order, and produce 3D printed anatomical structures on-demand. With dramatic realism enabled by Stratasys' unique PolyJet-based full-color, multi-material 3D printing solutions, advanced modeling enables medical professionals to innovate and evolve their healthcare strategies.
Built directly from patient scans, these realistic anatomical creations are 3D printed in full color and in a range of textures – from hard bone to soft tissue. The resulting models allow physicians to plan, practice and determine therapy approaches. Each prototype is designed to help advance surgical techniques and allow for training and testing in zero-risk environments.
"Stratasys is committed to opening new doors for practitioners to prepare for procedures by opening data communication from the hospital-based imaging systems to the 3D printing products and services used to provide patient-specific modeling," said Scott Rader, GM of Healthcare Solutions at Stratasys. "Philips customers can now add the impact and value of 3D printing to their IntelliSpace environments to accelerate efficiencies and advance innovation."
Stratasys is exclusively demonstrating the offering at RSNA 2017 – the 103rd Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America, November 26 – December 1 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Stratasys will showcase the streamlined workflow as well as a range of clinically impactful models 3D printed on standard-setting Stratasys PolyJet 3D printing solutions.
"Our interfacing with Philips IntelliSpace Portal 10 is designed to make it faster for doctors and their patients to receive customized, pre-surgical models," said Greg Reynolds, VP of Additive Manufacturing at Stratasys Direct Manufacturing.
