Chicago, May 12, 2023 – MedReality and Clarkson College 3D Printing and Training Center have entered into a partnership with the goal of increasing access to innovative 3D visualization technologies in health care.
The agreement brings together the MedReality 3D suite from Thyng LLC used for visualizing real world medical cases, and expertise at the Clarkson College 3D Printing and Training Center in 3D reconstruction, 3D printing and patient education.
“We are excited to work with Ms. Blair Kauzlarich, Ms. Patricia Weber and the Clarkson College 3D Printing and Training Center team to provide flexible and engaging 3D visualization experiences for patients and hospitals worldwide,” said Evan Derman, COO of Thyng, “Both parties have experienced firsthand the teaching power of 3D medical models. We look forward to collaborating on a number of initiatives that increase the accessibility of 3D visualization tools and enhance the patient education journey.”
“Working with MedReality has been beneficial in executing the mission of the Clarkson College 3D Printing and Training Center to provide a language that anyone can understand,” said Blair Kauzlarich, Clarkson College 3D Printing and Training Center Administrator. “We are able to take CT and MRI imaging, segment the anatomy of interest, and then create an interactive 3D model. These models have been used in a variety of ways to help educate and enhance patient care. MedReality helped make it all possible.”
Ms. Kauzlarich and the team used the MedReality 3D viewer for a recent case to help educate the patient. The model was used to show the current diagnosis of the hearts outflow tracts and relation to the Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD). Color coordination helped surgeons explain the VSD and its location to other structures, thus, showing that an intracardiac baffle procedure could potentially be the way to repair.
