axial3D’s mission is to make 3D printing routine within healthcare by improving the access clinicians have to 3D printing by giving them easy access to software & services to bridge the gap between technology and medicine.

By using 3D printed models, clinicians can gain vital insights ahead of surgery which can drastically change patient outcomes. 3D printed models also prove to be extremely useful in aiding patient education and communication ahead of complex surgeries. 
“When you look at the scale of surgery, there are 3 million operations per year. If we want 3D printed organs to be the norm – to unlock that market – we must automate this process. Luckily there are generalizable features in any person’s anatomy – in other words, commonalities with how their heart or spine will look. We can use previous scan files to train a classifier to label images.” said, Daniel Crawford, Founder and Chief Strategy Officer at axial3D

As axial3D looks to expand further into Europe and beyond, to the USA and other regions, the accolade of ‘Best Use of AI in Health’ at the European-wide DatSci Awards bolsters the company’s belief that 3D printing will make a genuine impact for both clinicians and patients in the years to come.
