Tactile Surgical Planning Aide
3D models represent 2D patient-specific CT scan data in physical form with the ability to contrast clinically relevant radiological data using different materials. Anatomical models are useful for reference in surgical planning.
MedCAD clinical designers replicate patient data by making high definition models with precision 3D printing technology. High definition 3D models portray visual and tactile patient anatomy.
Multi-Color Models, Clear Information
|Multi-color materials allow for 80+ color variations highlighting patient-specific anatomical regions of interest. The models are fully UV cured, maintaining high definition shape and consistent color over time.|
3D visualization of an individual’s anatomy prior to surgery can contribute to increased patient education and confidence. Review a model for advanced surgery preparation.
AccuModel® Tech Specs
ACCUMODEL® Patient-Specific Anatomical Models provide vivid, tactile 3D representations of patient anatomy, highlighting multiple internal and external structures differentiated by a variety of colored materials. Physical 3D models easily represent patient anatomy compared to the flatness of radiological data on two-dimensional screens. Study an AccuModel days before the surgery and consider your surgical plan. Quickly bring a team up to speed about a case using 3D models or educate a patient about their upcoming procedure with better tactile understanding.

More Colors, Clearer Information
80+ hue combinations are available to distinguish individual patient anatomy in AccuModel® Anatomical Models. Contrast teeth from tumors, nerves from demarcation lines, osteotomies, bone grafts, pathologies, measurements, patient ID, and vasculature with AccuModel® Multi-Color. Clearly view the difference between impacted teeth and tumors. For advanced soft tissue models, MedCAD can replicate dura, internal organs or vasculature
Complex 3D Models: In 2014, MedCAD produced a life-size 3D printed model of a set of conjoined twins. The CT and MRI scans were overlapped and the data was separated into two parts – digitally dividing the twins based on their personal anatomy. The surgical staff was then able to reference the model as they planned a delicate surgery, which ultimately resulted in a successful separation. See the full story >
AccuModel® Color Options
Models utilize the spectrum of available materials to vividly show patient-specific anatomy with a clear view of internal and external features.
Models are made with off-white opaque and clear 3D printed material at 28 micron layers to replicate patient anatomy in high detail.
Opaque models are made with an off-white 3D printed material ideal for tactile visualization of superficial patient anatomy.
