With the advent of 3D Printing, surgeons are able to spend less table time in the operating room, have fewer post-operative complications and to avoid unnecessary surgery. Mediprint and DocPanel have announced a unique partnership.
By combining Mediprint® Imaging-to-Print System with DocPanel's specialty radiologist marketplace, hospitals and surgeons now have the ability to access and use accurate 3D printed body parts with a diagnosis from a subspecialist radiologist.
"Having sub-specialty radiologists guide and review Mediprint's image segmentation adds a layer of clinical validation that is critical to producing accurate 3d printed models. With so many applications for 3d printed models across medical fields, having specific sub-specialty expertise gives our clients the confidence deserving of a clinical tool. Ultimately it is another step to ensure that patients are getting the most advanced personalized treatment possible." Brent Chanin CEO & CTO
"By working with Mediprint, DocPanel advances its mission of providing patients with better outcomes -the right specialist for each case. Using specialty radiologists to provide detailed diagnosis prior to printing allows surgeons to dramatically improve the surgical outcomes." DocPanel
