3D-printed heart models, giving clinicians better insights into complex pathologies.
With Materialise HeartPrint, you can print an anatomical replica of your patient’s anatomy in order to better understand the 3D relationships between the different structures.
Why choose a HeartPrint model for your clinical cases?
Improve communication between patients, their families and clinicians to make the approval process smoother
"The main benefit of 3D Printing for me is to show that individualized anatomy, as in congenital heart disease each anatomy is unique. And when we’re talking about operating and doing complex procedures on patients, to be able to see and feel that representation on a one-to-one scale really means that we can plan the best procedure, plan the best and most appropriate surgery and make sure we minimize our errors in judgment."
- Dr. Tarique Hussain, Pediatric Cardiologist, Evelina Children's Hospital at Guy's & St Thomas, UK
What can Materialise HeartPrint do for you?
Wide variety of materials
Let us help you select the optimal material for your needs. Our most commonly used material, Materialise HeartPrint Flex, results in realistic, highly flexible and translucent models. We can even print a combination of flexible and rigid materials in a single model to simulate calcifications.
To ensure that your Materialise HeartPrint model reaches the required level of detail and accuracy, we recommend that you use contrast-enhanced images with isotropic voxels. Check out the Materialise HeartPrint Imaging Guidelines.
