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.
