(3DPrint.com) GE Healthcare recently introduced a new software that makes creating and 3D printing 3D organ models a more intuitive process. Taking data from CT scans, the software converts the images into files that can be used to 3D print models of hearts, kidneys, lungs, livers, etc.
GE Healthcare’s 3D printing software works seamlessly with GE Advantage Workstation systems, which are being used by hospitals around the world. When a CT scan is taken, the anatomy is then rendered as a 3D image using GE’s Volume Viewer software, a 3D imaging platform that combines data from sources like CT, MRI and X-ray. The software then converts the image file generated by the Volume Viewer and translates it into a 3D printable file within seconds.
