RICOH 3D for Healthcare

Accessible patient-specific anatomic modeling.

Improve patient experience with  integrated, end-to-end, 3D medical modeling

What if you could show a patient a precise replica of their surgical area, and pinpoint exactly where you’d be operating to put them at ease and increase transparency? With 3D medical modeling, clinicians can see inside anatomy for greater visibility into patient needs and patients understand their procedures better, resulting in a better experience. You can even produce models that closely simulate the feel of actual tissue.

Integration into existing digital workflows means anatomic 3D medical devices are now more accessible. Healthcare organizations, surgeons, medical schools and researchers will be empowered to:

  • Create 3D medical models without a large capital investment.
  • Design and print 3D printed anatomic models much faster.
  • Produce files quickly with AI-assisted medical imaging.
Medtech Break though award
RICOH 3D for Healthcare was awarded Best New Technology Solution - Orthopedics by MedTech Breakthrough Awards. The MedTech Breakthrough Awards celebrate the world's most outstanding digital health and medical technology products, services and companies around the world. This year's award winners were selected from more than 4,000 nominations from across the globe.

Streamline access to 3D printed anatomic models 

An end-to-end workflow from your facility to our ISO-13485 certified 3D medical manufacturing center ensures a quick turn-around. Providers can select from two options based on their preferred workstyles or needs. They can choose a point-of-care option, where a Ricoh Managed Services team works onsite at a healthcare facility to manage the entire process. Alternatively, healthcare providers can select an on-demand option where they order and have the models printed at a Ricoh facility and shipped directly to them.

Be leading-edge with advanced anatomical modeling and imaging technology

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 (by Merative) (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 (by Merative).
  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.
