Synopsys recently announced version T-2022.03 of its Simpleware 3D image processing software, which is used in life science and advanced materials and manufacturing applications.

Improvements in the new version of Simpleware announced by the Mountain View, California-based company earlier this month include:

Simpleware AS Ortho Shoulder CT Auto Segmenter

The Shoulder CT Auto Segmenter has fully automatic AI segmentation of shoulder CT scans; segmenting of the humerus, scapula and clavicle; automatic positioning of anatomical landmarks; and automatic region-of-interest detection to speed up inference.

2D Contour Measurements

2D contour creation from straight lines, splines, and active contours, and D-shaped contours for computing dimensions of D-shaped annulus make this an effective tool when used in conjunction with…

Rize (Concord, Mass.) announced today that its xRize full-color industrial desktop 3D printer is compatible with Synopsys’ FDA-cleared Simpleware software, enabling affordable full-color 3D anatomical models from medical scan data.

“3D printing is becoming increasingly important in surgery, and the use of 3D printed models has been shown to increase our understanding of musculoskeletal diseases,” said Dr. Alister Hart, an orthopedic surgeon and professor at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in the U.K.

“We’re excited to work with Rize’s 3D printing platform along with the Simpleware software solutions for image segmentation,” Hart said in a news release. “Many aspects of surgical planning can benefit from 3D models — for example, to illustrate the distribution of bone density at various depths in the bone and to assist in positioning and screw …

Synopsys launches new software for Simpleware ScanIP Medical

Synopsys announced today that it launched a new software version to update the Simpleware ScanIP Medical program with FDA 510(k) clearance.

According to Synopsys, the new software includes 3D medical printing and point-of-care 3D printing, making Simpleware ScanIP Medical one of just a handful of software programs to garner such clearance with 3D-printed models created through the program suitable for diagnostic uses.

The software allows for processing medical imaging data into 3D models for pre-surgical planning and 3D printing, generating watertight STLs for direct export to 3D printing applications, according to the company’s website.

Synopsys’ platform offers patient-specific images through the combination of the image and CAD data for evaluating implant positions, while the tools on hand allow for the visualization and measurement of medical image data.

The company touts the platform as easy to learn and use with an intuitive inte…

Synopsys launches AI software for ortho, cardiology

Synopsys Simpleware Product Group recently announced that it has launched its Simpleware R-2021.03 fully automated segmentation and land marketing tools.

The AI-enabled software is made for new anatomies to improve orthopedic and cardiology-based workflows.

Simpleware AS Ortho and AS Cardio have fast and accurate solutions with machine learning algorithms for segmenting and landmarking anatomical structures, according to the company. The algorithms are verified by clinical professionals and are scalable to process large batches of data up to 50 times faster than traditional methods.

The modules are a one-click solution to help reduce tedious manual work on medical image data while producing models in 1-3 minutes with a standard engineering laptop. The software is run on local hardware to eliminate the need to upload confidential patient data to an offsite server for processing.

In the March release, the company said it is adding Ankle CT and Knee …
