MINNEAPOLIS & REHOVOT, Israel — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 28, 2016Stratasys Ltd. (Nasdaq: SSYS), the 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company, today further expanded its presence in healthcare by unveiling several new industry collaborations and customer demonstrations – further transforming the use of 3D printing for medical models, driving enhanced education, training, and learning. Presenting at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Stratasys Co-founder Scott Crump is addressing this first meeting of the society’s new 3D printing Special Interest Group (SIG). Additionally, the company is teaming up with Minneapolis-based Vital Images, Inc. to speed medical-based deployments of 3D printing technology.

This first RSNA-sponsored SIG serves as an important resource for 3D printing and radiology. Recognizing the initiative as an inflection point for hospital-based 3D printing, Stratasys is supporting this launch with the participation of industry thought leader Scott Crump – inventor of revolutionary Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printing. Invited by SIG’s Chairman Frank J. Rybicki, MD, PhD, Crump will offer his unique perspective on 3D printing in the hospital environment based on three decades of expertise that’s helped to shape this industry. Designed to foster discussion, cooperation and education, the opening session convenes at RSNA 2016.

“RSNA’s 3D printing SIG is intended to provide a multidisciplinary forum for collaboration among radiologists, physicians, engineers, and other applied scientists,” noted Rybicki. “We’re excited to have Scott Crump participate in the 3D printing SIG’s first business meeting.”

“Advancements in 3D printing technology for healthcare make it possible for doctors to transform their approaches to surgical pre-planning and patient care. Time and again, the technology is used by physicians to plan, practice and determine appropriate care plans, while minimizing surgical risks and streamlining costs,” said Scott Crump, Co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer at Stratasys. “This new Special Interest Group will create a forum for the collaboration the market demands at this time.”

Stratasys is also furthering its alliance with Minneapolis-based Vital Images, Inc., a leader in medical imaging and informatics. The companies are jointly exhibiting 3D printing and automated segmentation of medical images at RSNA – supported by Vitrea Advanced Visualization software which delivers multi-modality automated segmentation to generate models from DICOM 3D assets.

“Automated segmentation and STL creation have been integrated into Vital software for years and our demonstration with Stratasys allows customers to take full advantage of these next-generation capabilities,” says Jim Litterer, president and CEO of Vital Images. “We encourage those attending RSNA to stop by the Vital booth for live demonstrations of how automated segmentation can speed up the workflow of STL creation.”

RSNA attendees can also join Stratasys medical experts along with a team of radiologists for a unique 3D Printing Continuing Medical Education Session. The forum explores ideal approaches for utilizing patient-specific MR and CT imaging, isolating the anatomy of interest and preparing files for 3D printing leveraging Stratasys PolyJet technology – resulting in anatomically accurate models for training and learning.

“Stratasys has long been a thought leader and innovator of 3D printing for applications used in healthcare. Our solutions are designed to enable doctors, researchers and medical device manufacturers to work smarter, faster and test more thoroughly. Patients win by receiving unique, personalized care and treatment. We’ll continue to push its adoption across all areas of medicine, creating new opportunities at every point on the healthcare delivery value chain,” said R. Scott Rader, PhD, General Manager of Medical Solutions at Stratasys.

At an exclusive “Ask the Experts” evening reception, Stratasys is additionally working with Vital Images to explore the way hospitals leverage 3D printing for surgical planning, education, training and research. In addition to Frank J. Rybicki, MD, PhD, registrants will learn from Jane M. Matsumoto, MD, Assistant Professor of Radiology at the Mayo Clinic. This exclusive event is taking place on Monday, November 28 at 6:30 pm at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place. For more information and to RSVP, please visit our networking events page.

All booth attendees are eligible to participate in a new promotion for a free DICOM-to-3D printed model contest and giveaway. RSNA 2016 convenes on November 27 to December 2 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. Visit Stratasys at North Hall B, No. 6360.
