SurgiCase Connect now available for iPad in United States

Thursday, May 31, 2012

SurgiCase Connect is a free, interactive tool that enables surgeons to upload medical image data and communicate about 3D surgical plans and the design of 3D printed surgical guides with skilled clinical engineers at Materialise. In order to make SurgiCase Connect easier to use than ever, Materialise is proud to announce that there is now a SurgiCase Connect iPad App available for download in US App Store.

Thanks to this mobile platform surgeons will be able to fit SurgiCase Connect seamlessly into their fast-paced lives. In addition, the fact that they can use their fingers to manipulate 3D models and review surgical plans brings an extra "personal touch" to the planning of patient-specific surgical procedures. Perfection has never been so easy to achieve.

Looking ahead to the future, the Materialise team is constantly working to improve our 3D visualization and soon our graphics will be retina display ready for the next generation of iPads.
