3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) have given a preview of new medical software. Known as DICOM-to-Print (D2P) its purpose is to enhance healthcare productivity. The product will enable doctors to practice and map surgical procedures with the use of digital 3D anatomical models. Moreover, D2P will also simplify 3D printing of anatomical models. 3D Systems have previously spoken about the strategic importance of the health care market and how they plan to replicate success in this sector across other key market segments.

Kevin McAlea, EVP, General Manager of Metals & Healthcare at 3D Systems said:

Our goal with D2P is to provide medical professionals with greater knowledge and productivity by enabling easier access to 3D models. This represents a significant step forward for our end-to-end healthcare solution

D2P can convert DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) data into 3D designs enabling the use of 3D imagery in medicine. DICOM data is a standard for transmitting information in medical imaging which means this software meets medical standards. Simplifying the process in this way shall have positive impact on the use of 3D printing and scanning in the Medical field.

D2P software is another example of 3D systems exploring the use of 3D in different fields as they have with their Figure 4 hardware (pictured above). The company hope the, as of yet not commercially available, Figure 4 will open up interesting new manufacturing possibilities with its high throughput and novel materials.

According to 3D Systems, D2P software will deliver patient specific digital models to be exported for various uses. Such applications include CAD software, virtual reality visualizations and 3D printing. D2P could therefore pave the way for medical diagrams to be displayed in mixed reality similar to what we saw yesterday with the SketchUp Viewer. This application of 3D design would be perfect for teaching in the classroom.
