This could be the opportunity for Scripps and other hospitals and clinics worldwide to connect the dots between molecule modeling + 3D printing and anatomical modeling + 3D printing...
A few days ago I told you about French sci-fi writer Bernard Werber: he had the exact replica of his own heart printed out, with the help of a 3D printer (see here)...
Now comes the disruptive stuff, I mean, the real thing. Ever imagined a Wikipedia for human anatomy, with 3D interactive pix from real life? A Wikianatomy (interactive, digital, 3D, open access, woldwide, user friendly), used by medical students (for learning and exams) and physicians and surgeons and dentists, worldwide... Wondering what their business plan might look like?
3D Systems Launches Bespoke Modeling(TM)
This looks good for maxillofacial repair surgery! Interested in a partnership with Bespoke Modeling, Institut Faire Faces in Amiens, France?
Well I've met with a bunch of crazy'n brainy French guys at Paris V Rene Descartes University in August 2013 (Latin Quarter Paris in August, delightful), and with 3D Systems VP (in charge of Business Development) Lee Dockstader, for the launching of a groundbreaking new medical 3D imaging and 3D printing solution: BESPOKE MODELING TM (3D Systems Inc.)

3D systems Inc. is a US company, one of the worldwide leaders in 3D printing... This company is launching Bespoke Modeling TM and this is brand new!

Bespoke is a digital database of 3D modelized (real life) pieces of anatomy, enabling physicians to make stunning 3D models in minutes, converting CT scans into full-color 3D models and 3D prints with the easy-to-use, cloud-based application Bespoke Modeling TM. The benefits for the healthcare system? Cut costs (and forget about cadaver labs), save time (on medical imaging), enhance communication. The benefits for MDs? Increase their value to patients...
Special thanks to Sylvain Ordureau, with Vizua 3D, Useful Progress and Bespoke Modeling TM, and to Lee Dockstader, with 3D Systems Inc.
At Scripps Translational Science Institute la Jolla, California, the guys from the Office of Technology Development (Negotiating corporate research collaborations) might be interested in this... Their dept of Modeling is doing molecular stuff (modeling and 3D printing). How about anatomic stuff?
