When designing implants, the accuracy of the implant to the individual’s anatomy plays a key role in the long-term success of the implant. For this reason, the need for different types of scanning technologies has become increasingly more important.
Medical imaging data from computer tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) captures realistic geometries of patients from scans. Many companies require pre scans and/or post scans to evaluate the success of the implant, or to submit for FDA validation and approval.
The same applies to any type of personalized medical solutions. Scans often times provide patient specific information allowing for more precise medical advancement solutions.
