Engineering at the point-of-care with 3D Printing 

by Amy Alexander (Mayo Clinic)

Each year, over 1.3 million patients from all US states and more than 150 countries are seen at one of the Mayo Clinic facilities, known for its highly specialized medical care. Many of them are referrals from other hospitals.

Join us in this webinar as Ms. Amy Alexander will give you key insights into how to successfully implement 3D Printing at the point-of-care using Mimics Innovation Suite. Moreover, they will highlight the newest features of the image-based 3D medical software that enabled Mayo Clinic to advance the planning workflow.

Mimics Innovation Suite – Augmenting the Academic Experience

by Assistant Prof. Ellen Roche (MIT)

Mimics Innovation Suite has established itself as the most comprehensive image-based 3D toolkit available for anyone who wants to engineer on anatomy. In addition to advancing planning workflows, it can also be applied within the academic field as a high-quality R&D and educative support. Join assistant prof. Ellen Roche (MIT) as she shows you how the image-processing 3D medical software enables her to translate research concepts into innovative devices to repair or augment cardiac functions. Moreover, Ms. Roche will talk about the added value of incorporating Mimics Innovation Suite in the curriculum.

Automating Key Components of Finite Element Research

by Amelie Sas, MSc, University of Leuven, Belgium

In total hip replacement surgery, most traditional designs of femur components have a long stem. Short hip stems have only recently been introduced, and these are presumed to reduce proximal stress shielding compared to traditional, long stems. However, due to their smaller contact area with the bone, high peak stresses and areas of stress shielding could appear in the proximal femur, especially in the presence of atypical bone geometries.

Translating Computational Models into a More Predictable Patient Outcome for Structural Heart Interventions

by Prof. Dr. Ir. Matthieu De Beule

Dr. Ir. Matthieu De Beule will talk about how computational modelling and simulation can give medical device companies the opportunity to integrate valve design with patient-specific testing, and to do so virtually, cost-effectively and in a clinically meaningful way.

Using 4D CT to Understand Anatomy-Device Interaction across the Cardiac Cycle

by Julianne Spencer Principal Scientist, Medtronic

In this webinar, Julianne Spencer from Medtronic will share how she uses the new 4D feature in the Mimics Innovation Suite 21.0 to optimize her analysis of transcatheter heart valves. She will discuss the value of 4D analysis for her work and explain how the latest version of the software is empowering her to understand device behavior, while removing hours from her previous workflow.

Automatically Fitting Devices and Performing Measurements of Post-Operative Facial Reconstruction through Scripting

by Dr. Peter Metherall,
Clinical Scientist and Chartered Engineer at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, NHS Foundation Trust

Dr Peter Metherall will present:

  • How to fit a bone conduction hearing implant system to the mastoid. In this type of surgery, the location of the device is critical. The developed scripted workflow allowed to investigate many possible locations for placement, and to thereby determine if the transducer will fit within the mastoid.
  • How to evaluate post traumatic eye correction surgery. The post-operative correction was compared to the planned position using the registered skull as a fixed reference.
