Stratasys has introduced a new material for the J850 Digital Anatomy photopolymer 3D printers, which enables the creation of “radiorealistic” models, visible in computed tomography or X-rays. RadioMatrix will enable the medical industry to use patient-specific radiopaque models on imaging equipment. By comparing the radiorealistic models with the original DICOM images, medical laboratories will be able to assess tolerances and verify the accuracy of the model.

RadioMatrix is the first radiopaque material for widely used Digital Anatomy 3D printing systems that enables users to create full-color and biomechanically realistic models for training, pre-operative planning and medical device development. Models can be viewed under computed tomography or X-rays.

By adding specific amounts of RadioMatrix resin to a printed model made of a different Vero material, designers can assign radiation impermeability values from -30 to 1000 Hounsfield units (HU) to the model layers, providing contrast between anatomical structures to make them appear real in medical imaging. such as CT and X-Ray.
