3D Printed Model Demonstration (metal 3D printed fluoroscopic phantom)

You see in there, that is no anatomical noise in there. It was just a heart. And what we can do, we go and we take a X-ray image, as specific energy. We make a map of that, and we create a map equivalent in aluminum. And Stratasys has printed this for us, in aluminum, so if you put it just under the X-rays in here, there is actually like a head phantom.   And, for example, if you want now to have this head phantom with a model that you want to do a procedure where you want to…

3D Printed Model Hands-on Demonstration (wire insertion into catheter)

OK, so these wires are super small and really hard to get in there. So what they’ll do is, have you ever used one? No. Introducer is what this is called. So you just back load it in there. OK, now suck it back in. And if I’m holding this down, you can just push that introducer in. And now go ahead and advance that wire. And, normally, on these wires, there’s, oops. They call it zebra stripes. Or it’s just little markers on it that you know it’s about to come out the end of the catheter. So go…

3D Printed Model Hands-on Demonstration (catheter insertion into 3D printed phantom)

this is a 35 wire. They call it that because it’s 0.035 inches in diameter. And on the end you can see it’s angled and it’s a little floppier. So go ahead and feel the difference. Oh. OK. OK, now if I get it wet, it activates a hydrophilic coating. So now feel how slippery it is. Wow. Yeah. So the idea is that this can track into your patient’s vessels without causing damage. So if it hits a side, it will ricochet straight off. So I’m going to try not to hit anyone with this. You’re all wearing nice…

Creating Patient-Specific 3D Printed Models (segmentation)

Welcome to the JI today. Rick and I really want to take the next 15 minutes to go through two steps of the design process, from CT MRI to a surface model via segmentation and then cleaning that model up in order to then print it and put a flow pump through it. So we’re so happy to be at Stratasys 3D Printing Center of Excellence in Healthcare. It just makes sense.   The JI has domain expertise in devices with all the medical device manufacturers that come through, the physician expertise downstairs with the imaging systems and the partnerships…

3D Printed Model Demonstration (delivery of a left atrial appendage occlusion device)

The device we’re talking about potentially delivering is this device called the WATCHMAN device. It’s sort of an umbrella shaped device. Think of the appendage as a little pouch that sits here, and this device basically comes in here, the feeder in the device and it covers the ostium into it to basically close it up.   To deliver this device we have to come up the vein from the groin, come across the interatrial septum, make a little hole through it, put a sheet through it and deliver the device. That’s simple enough. So, let’s see if we can…

The History of 3D Printed Models at Jacobs Institute

I’m going to introduce Dr. Ciprian Ionita, or Chip as we call him. Chip is a biomedical engineer and physicist. He kind of straddles both worlds. He has a joint appointment at the Department of Neurosurgery in the School of Medicine as well as in the School of Engineering. And he, together with Dr. Siddiqui, was the pioneer behind the 3D printed vascular models. So, he’s going to talk a little bit about the history and how it developed.   Thank you. Good to see you guys. Welcome to Buffalo. So I’ll just give you a brief description of how…

Jacobs Institute Facility Tour

The University of Buffalo opened spring of 2012. Our doors opened September of 2012 with all of two employees, and that’s sort of our story.   So one of the things that we’ve done here is a pretty unique model. Really, actually, a lot of what we’ve done here is a unique model. It’s sort of a collaborative utopia. I saw some of those questions that folks had wanted to talk about which was, how do I get hospital administration to try and buy on and maybe get a printer or do things like that. So our model here is…

3D Printing For Medical Applications

Michael Gaisford explains the differences in FDM and Polyjet 3D printing technology and the many ways each can be utilized in medical applications.   So a little bit about Stratasys and who we are. We’re a company that’s been around for over 25 years. 3D printing for a lot of people is a new technology. You’re seeing it on Grey’s Anatomy and other shows as something that is brand new. Or you haven’t really seen it necessarily, but it has been around for a while.   Actually, 3D printing in the medical space goes back a couple of decades. It’s…

Jacobs Institute Welcome and Introduction

So I am Pamela Marcucci. I am not Michael Springer, who is on the agenda. Michael was not able to attend this morning. So I’m going to be talking on his behalf. Michael is the director of operations and entrepreneurship, and he’s a biomedical engineer, so he’s been really spearheading this 3D printing initiative.   And I’ve been peripherally involved, as well. I just wanted to take a second to talk about what to expect today. So I’m going to speak for a very short period of time. Then we’re going to have a tour. Allison Kupferman, our manager for…
