Virtual Implantation of MCS Devices
By Dr. Ryan Moore and Todd Pietila
How do you harness the power of Mimics in your hospital? Cincinnati Children’s Hospital uses 3D technology to perform the virtual implantation of mechanical circulatory support (MCS) devices as part of their procedural planning process. Dr. Ryan Moore discusses the 40 intracorporeal MCS devices he has implanted in pediatric and young adult patients that were virtually planned using Mimics.
Discover how Dr. Moore estimates the potential total cardiac volume needed for a heart transplant with the use of 3D anatomic modeling.
In this webinar, you will learn:
How to perform the virtual implantation of MCS devices
Why Mimics and 3D modeling adds value, including post-implant analysis
How Cincinnati Children’s Hospital has created one of the most robust datasets for the virtual implantation of MCS devices

Ryan Moore is an Associate Professor at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital specializing in cross-sectional cardiac imaging (MRI/CT) and advanced 3D modeling, visualization, and digital interactivity, including 3D printing, virtual/augmented reality, and game engine-enhanced virtual surgical planning. His team has spearheaded work in virtual surgical planning for congenital heart surgeries, virtual implantation of mechanical circulatory support devices in pediatric and young adults, and virtual transplantation to expand the pediatric heart and lung transplant donor pools.
He recently co-founded Cincinnati Children’s Digital Experience Technologies lab. Dr. Moore has also created a great deal of digital content for patient-family-provider education, including the Heartpedia mobile application, Surgical Animate mobile application with several unique surgical animations, and most recently, Hank the Heart health literacy animations.
