Ricoh 3D for Healthcare

Accessible patient-specific anatomic modeling.


An integrated, end-to-end 3D medical modeling solution 

The barriers to anatomic modeling for healthcare organizations are gone. Now, surgeons, medical schools and researchers can:
  • Create 3D medical models without a large capital investment.
  • Design and print 3D anatomic models much faster.
  • Produce files quickly with AI-assisted medical imaging.
As a result, patients will have greater comfort as they understand their procedures better. Doctors and surgeons will learn faster and find anatomic medical modeling more accessible with integrations into existing workflows.

Gain insight with 3D printed anatomic models

Common uses for patient-specific models include:
  • Patient education
  • Patient communication for complex cases/treatment
  • Patient informed consent to increase patient knowledge of treatment
  • Cadaver-free physician training
  • Anatomic simulation to practice new/rare approaches
Our services unite 3D medical models with digital imaging workflows to give doctors and surgeons a powerful educational tool. 

Streamline access to 3D printed anatomic models 

An end-to-end workflow from your facility to our ISO-13485 compliant 3D medical manufacturing center ensures a quick turn-around and shipment back to your office.

Be leading-edge with advanced anatomical modeling and imaging technology

With 3D printing, you can produce models that closely simulate the feel of actual tissue. And beyond your 3D printed anatomic models for education and training, our services include:
  • AI-assisted segmentation software.
  • A biomedical engineer to ensure every model meets the requestors’ requirements.
  • An on-demand Ricoh Case Management Portal to monitor and track your project anytime.



How our solution works

Working with us is simple:

  1. A surgeon determines a need for a 3D printed anatomical model.
  2. The radiology resource segments the needed imaging data (DICOM) via the interactive segmentation feature in IBM iConnect® Access from IBM Watson Health. (Or, our biomedical engineer can segment the imaging data for you.)
  3. The data is converted into a 3D printable file, again via the software in IBM iConnect Access.
  4. The ordering physician reviews and approves the final file which is then submitted via secured workflow portal.
  5. A Ricoh biomedical engineer reviews the file, consults with the physician as needed, and prepares the model for production.
  6. After printing, the model undergoes post-processing with any specific finishing requirements.
  7. Quality Assurance (QA) verifies and validates the part.
  8. Finally, the model is packed and shipped directly to the customer.

Put 3D medical modeling to work for you and your patients

With the integration of an enterprise zero-footprint DICOM viewer, advanced visualization and segmentation tools and 3D Printing, patient-specific anatomical models become a powerful way to create a better overall experience for patients.
