Medical Hands-On Training | September 26-27, 2019 | Barcelona, Spain

Mimics Innovation Course

During these in-depth, hands-on courses Materialise experts will take you through all of the capabilities of the software step-by-step. After the course, you will understand all of the latest enhancements, features and benefits so you can master the tools and apply them within your own organization.

This Mimics Innovation Course is co-organized together with the CIM UPC in Barcelona, a specialized spinoff of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia.

What will you learn during this training

  • Go from medical imaging data all the way to personalized 3D models
  • Design patient-specific devices or simulate and plan surgeries based on segmented anatomy
  • Speed up your workflow using automation features

Program: Mimics Innovation Course - co-organized with CIM UPC

The Mimics Innovation Suite (MIS) is the most versatile tool you need to construct a 3D model from medical image data, whether your end goal is to simulate and plan surgeries or to design patient-specific devices. The Suite also allows you to automate your workflows, potentially saving time while having more consistent results.

If you want to get a head-start on segmenting medical images to create 3D models using the Mimics Innovation Suite, then this is the training for you.

The training is designed to be suitable for all levels of experience with the Mimics Innovation Suite, even if you are a beginner.

"Researching scoliosis with the spine in an upright position is extremely challenging. The spine has many vertebrae and between each are very complex joints. Achieving very precise segmentation was only possible with the Mimics Innovation Suite, as the software was able to recognize the contours of the CT slices.”
