Anatomical Engineering for the Intelligent Design of Medical Devices


Published on

A discussion of the process of anatomical engineering and its several applications in medical device design, from producing patient matched implants to minimally invasive cardiac devices.

Anatomical engineering consists of extracting 3D information from medical imaging data, such as CT or MRI scans and modeling such data using reverse engineering, CAD and additive fabrication techniques.

Some of the discussed applications include the following: the design and fabrication of custom cranial plates, the evaluation of minimally invasive mitral valve surgical devices, the digital design of a spina bifida simulation model for pediatric neurosurgery training, and CAD and stereolithography models of airways for test respiratory gas exchange.

These slides were originally presented by Crispin B. Weinberg at the 2013 Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show as part of the Medical Manufacturing Innovations Conference on October 2nd, 2013.
