Title: RadioMatrix: Additive Manufacturing of Radiopaque Materials.
Date: Wednesday, October 11, 2023, 10:00 AM CT
Wayne Morton, Principal Mechanical Design Engineer – CPI
With a wealth of experience in design, product development, and intricate manufacturing techniques, Wayne Morton plays a pivotal role at CPI. His expertise lies in assisting companies to conceptualize and create medical, wearable, and in vitro diagnostic (IVD) devices.
Ruth Bridcut, Physicist at Beaumont Hospital
Bringing nearly a decade of expertise from the NHS and Irish hospitals, Ruth specializes in providing invaluable medical physics support across a spectrum of diagnostic imaging applications. Her proficiency spans general X-ray imaging, Computed Tomography, MRI, and Interventional Radiology.
This webinar will discuss the development of a 3D-printed radiopaque medical model of cerebral angiography for training and research. The model was printed on the Digital Anatomy 3D Printer by CPI, a leading provider of additive manufacturing solutions, using Stratasys RadioMatrix, a radiopaque 3D print material specifically designed for creating medical models to exhibit radio-realistic features under imaging modalities X-Ray and CT.
The webinar will cover the following topics:
- The challenges of creating realistic and accurate models for cerebral angiography training and research
- How Stratasys RadioMatrix addresses these challenges
- The benefits of using a 3D-printed radiopaque medical model for cerebral angiography
- The collaboration between CPI and Beaumont Hospital to develop this groundbreaking use case.
- The outcomes of the project, including:
- Excellent accuracy and fidelity of the phantom head when subjected to various imaging modalities
- The phantom provided a reliable and cost-effective alternative to using real patients or phantoms of rigid geometric configurations for training and research purposes
