Stratasys is also furthering its alliance with Minneapolis-based Vital Images, Inc., a leader in medical imaging and informatics. The companies are jointly exhibiting 3D printing and automated segmentation of medical images at RSNA - supported by Vitrea Advanced Visualization software which delivers multi-modality automated segmentation to generate models from DICOM 3D assets."Automated segmentation and STL creation have been integrated into Vital software for years and our demonstration with Stratasys allows customers to take full advantage of these next-generation capabilities," says Jim Litterer, president and CEO of Vital Images. "We encourage those attending RSNA to stop by the Vital booth for live demonstrations of how automated segmentation can speed up the workflow of STL creation." RSNA attendees can also join Stratasys medical experts along with a team of radiologists for a unique 3D Printing Continuing Medical Education Session. The forum explores ideal approaches for utilizing patient-specific MR and CT imaging, isolating the anatomy of interest and preparing files for 3D printing leveraging Stratasys PolyJet technology - resulting in anatomically accurate models for training and learning.
