Please see our patient information sheet.
The best way to start using the service, is simply to log in and upload a trial scan. If you or your PACS team require any further information or an initial data agreement to be put in place we can provide this. Alternatively, simply just send us an email to email@example.com, and we will get back to you, liaise with your team and get everything setup.
Innersight3D is purchased by hospitals for use by surgeons on a SaaS basis in the form of annual subscriptions. There are no equipment, hardware, setup or perpetual license costs. The exact pricing depends on the type of 3D model, the number of cases expected, and whether custom functionality is required. Because we specialize in the rapid generation of virtual 3D models, we are able to offer a price point significantly lower than other 3D modelling/printing companies.
To start, an Innersight engineer converts the uploaded input CT/MRI into a 3D image segmentation of the scan. This initial segmentation is then edited and validated by our experienced team to ensure correctness. The clinician then receives this preliminary segmentation and validates it and can also make or request further edits. Finally, once the segmentation is deemed to be accurate by the clinician, a 3D model is generated using a standard 3D meshing algorithm.
Yes, Innersight3D is regulated for clinical use. The software is CE marked as a class 1 medical device. The MHRA registration number is 8770.
Innersight3D is intended for the re-visualization of existing CT or MRI scans into an interactive 3D model of anatomical structures to facilitate improved surgical planning. It is intended to be used by trained healthcare professionals such as surgeons or radiologists in a clinical setting to better inform their clinical judgement or assessment of the patient’s anatomy for the purpose of assisting with their pre and intra-operative surgical planning. It is intended to be used in addition and alongside the original CT/MRI scan.

Yes. You can request to build a 3D model for any part of the body. For example, users have requested 3D models for hip replacements, wrist surgery, lung surgery, kidney surgery and liver surgery. Please get in touch or leave a detailed description in the notes section when uploading to give details on your 3D model requirements.
This depends on your application. As a general rule it is the scan that has the best image resolution with thinnest slice thickness (<2mm) and contains the highest amount of contrast. For renal scans this is usually an axially sliced (0.5-1.5mm thickness) early phase arterial scan containing the kidneys with high contrast in the arteries.

Once the request form is complete click ‘REQUEST SCANS VIA IEP’
Complete the form
Click Upload scans
Once you have created a case you can track the progress on you diary by following the status updates and checking the thumbnail images
You successfully created a case and the scans are yet to be uploaded
iep request has been raised with SECTRA iep and the scans will be uploaded shortly
Scans have been uploaded successfully
The process for building a 3D model has started
The 3D model is built and undergoing reviews before publication
Your 3D model is approved and published and is ready to view on your team Diary
If there are any issues with a case, you may see one of the following status: Case closed, Contact Innersight, Scans not suitable, which can be followed up with a response via email to email@example.com or the feedback box in the case details by clicking the ‘Reply’ button
Cases can be closed for various reasons, for example: The clinician no longer requires a 3D model, suitable scans for 3D were unavailable, the planned procedure was cancelled.
There has been a request by the Innersight team for more information to help process the case. You can reply to the message via the email notification or by clicking ‘Reply’ to leave your response in the feedback section.
The scans received are not suitable for building a 3D model. You can reply to the message via the email notification or by clicking ‘Reply’ to leave your response in the feedback section, or simply use the ‘Reupload’ button.
To validate the CT scan used to build the 3D model sign in at diary.innersightlabs.com/
Then click on ‘Details’
The scan used to build the 3D model will be shown in green, click on ‘Validate’
You can now view the scan and validate the image using the tools on right side of the browser window
To interact with the 3D model click the thumbnail image of the 3D model where is says 'view 3D'
Each 3D model has its own set of buttons for each anatomical object set out on the right hand side of the 3D viewer.
Each button functions the same regardless of the object it represents. to view live updated 3D modelor click on the thumbnail image of the 3D model
