How can I get innersight3D for my practice ?

plus icon

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 info@innersightlabs.com, and we will get back to you, liaise with your team and get everything setup.

4

How much does it cost ?

plus icon

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.

5

How is the 3D model generated ?

plus icon

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.

6

Is Innersight3D regulated ?

plus icon

Yes, Innersight3D is regulated for clinical use. The software is CE marked as a class 1 medical device. The MHRA registration number is 8770.

7

What is the intended use of Innersight3D ?

plus icon

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.

8

Is there a manual for Innersight3D ?

plus icon

Download a pdf version of the manual here.

9

Can I build 3D models for any organ ?

plus icon

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.

10

What scans do I need to upload ?

plus icon

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.

11

How can I share the 3D model with colleagues ?

plus icon

Ask your colleagues to sign in at https://diary.innersightlabs.com/. Also send an email to info@innersightlabs.com asking us to grant access to your colleagues and we will then add them to your team so they can view the same 3D models as you.
