WhiteClouds Launching Medical 3D Printing Service

Full-color 3D-printing giant WhiteClouds has launched a new medical 3D printing service called 3DyourSCAN: offering personalized full color pre-surgery educational models based on a patient’s CT/MRI scans. These individual models can be turned around as quickly as 24 hours. 3DyourSCAN involves a proprietary “Hinge & Slice” system, able to provide a cross-section — connected by a hinge — to show what’s going on inside a particular body part. The technology is a partnership with advanced visualization software company TeraRecon.
