Anatomical Analysis

One size fits nobody. Understanding the anatomical variability of the target population is a critical success factor for R&D. This spans from the many off-the-shelf medical device designs to understanding treatment options and evaluating implant fit. Mimics Innovation Suite provides all the tools you need to conduct efficient and reliable analyses, even on large batches of CT or MRI scans.

Why perform anatomical measurements?

Understand the population

Obtain accurate and consistent 3D measurements on large numbers of virtual patients

Study new treatment options

Measure the impact of a treatment on anatomical geometry

Evaluate implant fit

Assess the fit by simulating implanting your design in virtual patients

Accelerate the design process

Get a head start by iterating quickly and optimizing implant fit before going to cadaver or animal testing

Mimics Innovation Suite enables you to:

  • Create a 3D model quickly through automatic segmentation
  • Perform advanced 3D measurements with our wide range of tools
  • Simulate cuts and implant placement to assess fit
  • Understand anatomical movement thanks to 4D imaging and multi-stack
  • Summarize complex 3D anatomical variations with statistical shape modeling
  • Analyze large batches of data efficiently and consistently through scripting
