Health technology company Philips has announced that it is working together with 3D Systems and Stratasys to incorporate a 3D modelling application into clinical workflows.

Philips customers will be able to access solutions from 3D Systems and Stratasys when using the IntelliSpace Portal 10, enabling them to create 3D printed models to help understand patient anatomy that is difficult to visualise. Data of models created in the IntelliSpace Portal can be saved and easily transferred to the 3D vendor without leaving the clinical environment.

Yair Briman, business leader Healthcare Informatics at Philips, said: “Enhancing how we visualise anatomy and diseases, like cancerous tumours, can profoundly affect the level of personalised care we can deliver to patients. By improving 3D printing capabilities by working with 3D Systems and Stratasys, we aim to empower providers to improve care for complex cases and increase diagnostic confidence.”

Kevin McAlea, executive vice president, Healthcare and Metals Business Units, 3D Systems, said: “Through our agreement with Philips, 3D Systems is furthering its commitment to advancing clinical performance and optimizing procedural outcomes through education and collaboration. We are happy to play a role in providing a comprehensive solution that will help clinicians and hospitals meet the unique challenges they are facing in today's value-based care environment through the use of 3D modelling tools.”

Scott Rader, GM of Healthcare Solutions at Stratasys, said: "Stratasys is committed to opening new doors for practitioners to prepare for procedures by opening data communication from the hospital-based imaging systems to the 3D printing products and services used to provide patient-specific modelling. Our alignment with a market leader like Philips takes this capability one step further. Philips customers can now add the impact and value of 3D printing to their highly effective IntelliSpace environments to accelerate efficiencies and advance innovation."
