Anatomical Models for Medical and Engineering Applications


Published on

Produced from medical imaging data, accurate 3D models of anatomy allow for concrete visualization, a tactile interface, and a platform for examining pathological anatomy.

This presentation discusses custom and patient-specific anatomical models and their medical and biomedical engineering applications. These models are used for surgical planning, developing custom implants, medical device testing, and healthcare training.

Anatomical Models for Medical and Engineering Applications

  1. 1. Anatomical Models for Medical and Engineering Applications Crispin B. Weinberg, Ph.D. | President Danice Y. Chou, B.S. | Biomedical Engineer Biomedical Modeling, Inc. Biomedical Modeling, Inc. | 1 of 13
  2. 2. Who are we? Biomedical Modeling, Inc. is a Boston-based anatomical engineering company. We make anatomical models from medical imaging data (CT, MRI, etc.) for medical, dental, and engineering applications. Biomedical Modeling, Inc. 2 of 13
  3. 3. What do we do? Biomedical Modeling, Inc. We are best known for the models we made for planning the surgical separation of the Alvarez twins who were conjoined at the head. 3 of 13
  4. 4. For Surgeons We make models tumor resections and craniofacial reconstruction. Tumor Biomedical Modeling, Inc. 4 of 13
  5. 5. For Anaplastologists Biomedical Modeling, Inc. We make models to serve as templates for making custom implants and prostheses. 5 of 13
  6. 6. For Dentists We make patient-specific models for dental implant placement. Biomedical Modeling, Inc. 6 of 13
  7. 7. For Engineers Biomedical Modeling, Inc. We make computer-based and bench-top models for medical device development, simulation, and research. 7 of 13
  8. 8. For Students & Educators We make models for healthcare training and surgical simulation. Biomedical Modeling, Inc. 8 of 13
  9. 9. Where do we start? For patient-specific models, we typically start working from the CT or MRI scans. If a patient-specific model is not required, we may be able to provide suitable data from our anatomical library. We also have the facilities and skills for 3D laser scanning to capture external surface geometries. Biomedical Modeling, Inc. 9 of 13
  10. 10. Virtual Models The virtual models we produce are available in various formats for engineering analysis, CAD design, and 3D printing. Biomedical Modeling, Inc. 10 of 13
  11. 11. Physical Models We fabricate our physical models through various 3D printing techniques in specialized materials and make molds for casting when the properties of “printable” materials are not adequate. Biomedical Modeling, Inc. 11 of 13
  12. 12. Why are biomodels useful? Our 3D models allow for concrete visualization, a tactile interface, and a platform for examining pathological anatomy. Biomedical Modeling, Inc. 12 of 13
