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?

Prepare for procedures with confidence and avoid surprises

Understand the 3D relationships of anatomical structures prior to entering the OR

Improve communication between patients, their families and clinicians to make the approval process smoother

Select the ideal medical device for your patient’s anatomy and condition

"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

What can Materialise HeartPrint do for you?

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. 

Imaging requirements

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.

How can you get started?

Facing a challenging case? Just transfer your medical scans and our clinical engineers will create an accurate cardiac 3D model. Or use Materialise Mimics inPrint software to create anatomical models yourself.
