Successful TMVR (transcatheter mitral valve replacement) requires innovation to navigate the high risks and complexity.

Unprecedented insights are revealed when using 3D planning to create pre-procedural plans. The adoption of 3D planning in the modern medical setting is inevitable.

Bring clarity to complexity by using Mimics Enlight’s automated 3D workflow. More accurate planning leads to improved patient outcomes.

2D vs 3D Planning

Although volume rendering gives the impression of working in 3D, measurements are taken on the 2D projection of the model. When using accurate 3D models, measurements snap to the model, which allows evaluation in all three dimensions.

Volume rendering is limited to 2D planning with 3D visualization while true 3D planning uses accurate 3D models to enable automated analysis and enhanced spatial insights.
