Patient-specific 3D-printed cardiovascular models
Evaluating your patient’s anatomy can be vital when determining a treatment strategy. With Materialise HeartPrint, you can print their cardiovascular anatomy as a physical 3D model.
Our solutions address all of your needs for anatomical models, as well as a wide range of applications. HeartPrint Research offers solutions for cardiovascular models for R&D and marketing such as benchtop models.
Why choose a HeartPrint model for your clinical cases?
"The main benefit of 3D Printing for me is to show that individualized anatomy, as in congenital heart disease each anatomy is unique. And when we’re talking about operating and doing complex procedures on patients, to be able to see and feel that representation on a one-to-one scale really means that we can plan the best procedure, plan the best and most appropriate surgery and make sure we minimize our errors in judgment."
- Dr. Tarique Hussain, Pediatric Cardiologist, Evelina Children's Hospital at Guy's & St Thomas, UK
Assisting clinical decisions
Materialise HeartPrint can assist you in selecting the appropriate tools and/or deciding on the optimal insertion of medical devices for cardiovascular procedures.
Wide variety of materials
Let us help you select the optimal material for your needs. Our most commonly used material, Materialise HeartPrint Flex, results in realistic, highly flexible and translucent models. We can even print a combination of flexible and rigid materials in a single model to simulate calcifications.
To ensure that your Materialise HeartPrint model reaches the required level of detail and accuracy, we recommend that you use contrast-enhanced images with isotropic voxels. Check out the Materialise HeartPrint Imaging Guidelines.
