axial3D to share knowledge on implementing Machine Learning in Planning for Cardiac Surgery at Bioengineering Conference

17 December 2018



axial3D has been selected to give a presentation at the 25th Bioengineering in Ireland (BinI 2019) conference, hosted by the University of Limerick, on January 18-19 2019.

The presentation, based on an abstract submitted to the BinI Organising Committee, will showcase the work that axial3D has been carrying out in implementing Machine Learning within the segmentation stage of 3D Printing. Ultimately, enabling clinicians to make more informed decisions when it comes to surgical planning.

The axial3D team is carrying out this work to enable clinicians to have greater insight and more confidence when it comes to treating cardiac patients.

While some studies have shown that Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans are better at detecting and ruling out suspected heart conditions than standard checks, creating a 3D physical replica of the organ allows the clinician to carry out in vitro testing, inevitably understanding issues with much greater depth.

Each year, an estimated 31% of all deaths worldwide are linked to cardiac issues. By solving this issue, this technology allows clinicians to help more people, faster, and with better insight.

Running since 1995, the Bioengineering in Ireland conference is one of Ireland’s longest-running and most active. It covers a diverse range of topics from biomechanics, biomaterials, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine and imaging. You can register to attend the event here.
