Imaging & Diagnosis
CT or MRI scanning of the patient to get damaged or deformed bone(s). After reception of CT at our premises, we create a 3D model of the bone based on CT.
Within 3 days the bioengineers and medical engineers propose several variations of models of implants based on computer tomography. Working closely with the surgeons we select the best option for prototyping.
When model is ready we print a plastic implant. Having physical samples helps to understand whether the implant is fitting well or additional modification are required for subsequent intraoperative use. Indeed, it also helps to plan the surgery and find better solutions. If the plastic model of the implant fits well to the receptive bone model then, a titanium implant is printed.
Medical graded titanium (Ti64 grade 5 or grade ELI) is mainly used for printing metallic implants. Unlike to a standard implant that needs to be bent and cut to fit damaged bone, our 3D printed customized implants are precisely fitting with the reconstruction part. These 3D printed titanium implants are lightweight, have admirable strength, and excellent biocompatibility.
