Mimics Enlight CMF offers a comprehensive and user-friendly preoperative 3D planning solution

Leuven, Belgium — April 19, 2024 — Materialise, a global leader in medical 3D printing and planning solutions, has launched Mimics Enlight CMF, a 3D planning software that improves in-house planning for surgical applications through increased automation and enhanced accuracy capabilities.

Mimics Enlight CMF offers automated planning and design tools that increase speed, ease of use, and precision for many aspects of cranio-maxillofacial surgical preparation, including soft tissue simulation, bone intersection computations, impaction and osteotomy visualization, and anatomical model creation. This allows surgeons to focus on predicting final outcomes and making informed clinical decisions for orthognathic and reconstruction surgeries that range from routine to challenging cases.

“Our Mimics Enlight CMF software is an innovative yet intuitive technology solution that offers the automations, workflows, models, and applications needed to streamline 3D surgical preparation, regardless of the complexity of the case,” said Katrien Plessers, Software Product Manager at Materialise. “This software offers robust and efficient planning capabilities, empowering surgeons and medical teams to deliver personalized outcomes to more patients.”

The software also allows for real-time updates to align with evolving surgical needs and provides a central location for all members of medical teams to collaborate and communicate. Improved workflows, user-friendly surgical planning, and automated design frees up providers to focus more on patient care.

Mimics Enlight CMF uses Materialise’s Mimics technology, which has been trusted by leading medical device manufacturers and hospitals globally for nearly 30 years. Materialise has been at the center of CMF planning for more than two decades, with 450 medical centers worldwide using its 3D software at the point of care to treat more than 10,000 patients per year.

Using 3D technology results in higher accuracy and better results, as well as fewer complications and readmissions. Virtual planning and printing at the point of care also result in faster lead times as medical providers don’t have to wait for the delivery of personalized parts.

Mimics Enlight CMF is currently available in Europe and Japan. Additional information on the solution can be found here.
