3DCeram, a recognized industry player in the ceramics additive manufacturing industry for 17 years, will be part of a multi-disciplinary consortium involved in building the Next Generation X-Ray Imaging System (NEXIS).
The ambitious project will involve the entire value chain from photonics R&D, medical systems integrator, application owner, component supply chain and equipment manufacturer.
The NEXIS project aims to develop a new spectral detector, that will enhance image quality and improve the feature of rapid stroke diagnosis directly in the intervention room.
This new system will not just reduce the duration of diagnosis and treatment by up to 50% but also benefit patients in terms of costs. Once completed, the new system will be clinically evaluated at Sweden’s Karolinska University Hospital.
3DCeram will be using their ceramic 3D printing technology to produce parts of the detector, via their CERAMAKER® 900 industrial printer in Limoges, France.
As the world leader in 3D ceramic printing solutions, Richard Gaignon, the co-director of 3DCeram, expressed his delight that their selection in the consortium was recognition of his company’s technology and innovation strategy for the past 17 years. With the opportunity to work alongside Europe’s leading researchers, 3DCeram will implement their advanced ceramic 3D printing technologies to bring medical research to another level.
