WhiteClouds, full-color 3D printing cloud provider, has recently declared the launch of a 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.
Parallel to the development of this technology is a partnership announcement between WhiteClouds and TeraRecon, the 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.
Jeff Sorenson, TeraRecon’s President and CEO, said, “WhiteClouds’ technology gives our customers instant access to 3D printing resources that would otherwise have high barriers to entry. Clinicians have already proven 3D printing to be a useful tool as the medical industry continues to progress towards personalized healthcare. We are excited to work with WhiteClouds to not only make 3D printing accessible, but also make prints that set a new standard and are remarkable in terms of their detail and realism.”
