"Medical 3D Printing holds great potential to transform care and realize personalized medicine. Radiology will play a large role in the use of medical models.

– Dr. Frank J. Rybicki, MD PhDChief of Medical Imaging at The Ottawa Hospital

3D-printed anatomical models are the newest components of a multidisciplinary clinical team, improving communication and education by creating a tangible representation of the anatomy. Mimics inPrint is a dedicated solution, enabling you to create these anatomical models yourself from your medical images. Integrated in your clinical environments it provides fast, and efficient 3D Printing workflows with a direct link to 3D Printing as a service or in-house technology. By working with Materialise software, you are relying on the experts in 3D printing that will support you in establishing a robust 3D printing program.

Product Information

Description of the software

Materialise's Interactive Medical Image Control System (MIMICS) is a software tool for visualizing and segmenting medical images (such as CT and MRI) and rendering 3D objects. Mimics inPrint may be used as a medical device, within the limits of the intended use statement described below.

Indications for use

Mimics inPrint is intended for use as a software interface and image segmentation system for the transfer of imaging information from a medical scanner such as a CT scanner, such as a CT scanner or a Magnetic Resonance Imaging scanner, to an output file. It is also used as pre-operative software for imulating/evaluating surgical treatment options.
