Image-to-Implant: Essential Design and Manufacturing Considerations in Additive Manufacturing


By Madeleine McIntyre & Yeoh Choon Hong, Materialise; Yvonne Lim, EOS 


Every patient’s anatomy is unique and personalized devices and implants for unique physiologies can provide for a more predictable outcome. What’s exciting is that the technologies are here now to make this happen.  

3D Printing gives implant designers an unprecedented freedom in finding an optimal design. The medical image-based implant design approach enables the implants to be more anatomically contoured. Whilst adding porous structures and surface texture can further improve biointegration1. This is why an increasing number of medical device manufacturers is steadily and progressively embracing Additive Manufacturing technology for personalization of orthopedic implants to achieve improved design and functionality.

Join Materialise and EOS in this webinar to learn about essential design and manufacturing considerations for implementing personalized implants from image to print, cost-effectively at scale.
