Pre-operative 3D surgical planning using virtual software platforms and 3D printed medical models (replicas of human anatomy made from real patient scan data) are a powerful personalised patient care tool proven to augment treatment insights beyond that of traditional medical imaging for healthcare providers. They allow surgeons to plan surgery in greater detail and go into the operating room with greater confidence, reducing surgical time, cost and improving patient safety, understanding and satisfaction.
Conceptualiz enables healthcare providers, with no prior experience in 3D modelling, to easily create accurate 3D digital models quickly and automatically from medical imaging data with the touch of a finger. Our mobile iPad app virtual surgical planning and 3D printing software platform allows orthopaedic surgeons to plan surgical steps on their patient; such as osteotomy, fracture reduction, screw placement and plate templating. Automatic plate contouring makes templating easy and enables the development of custom plate designs. Other types of 3D implants, such as hip and knee replacements, are available and can be imported and templated to fit the patient. Measurements of lengths and angles can be performed in 3D space. Surgeons can then export their 3D surgical plan as an STL file for 3D printing.
"Now that we are able to 3D print a patient's joint we are really able to see what we are going to do in surgery when we do arthroscopy through small incisions."
3D printed models of patient anatomy provide additional information and understanding for surgeons, such as spatial position and scale, than can be appreciated from standard 2D/3D imaging on a computer screen; allowing healthcare providers to plan and perform better surgery in minimally invasive conditions such as arthroscopy where visibility is reduced.

Conceptualiz is a provider of 3D surgical planning software solutions for healthcare providers and hospitals of all sizes. Customers can choose between a complete end-to-end modelling and 3D printing solution or individual modules consisting of automatic 3D digital model creation, intuitive 3D surgical planning and rapid 3D printing.
At Conceptualiz, we're passionate about building innovative products that deliver value to the healthcare industry. Founded by a unique group of healthcare professionals and computer scientists we believe that the key to getting new technology into the hands of healthcare providers is through advances in human-computer interaction and user-centred design. We aim to challenge the idea of how 3D digital healthcare should be experienced and what kind of expertise it should take to use it. Get in touch today to learn more.
