I need to find a supplier that will be able to provide high quality, accurate and ongoing image processing/image segmentation of medical images.
Roughly the ongoing process will be;
1) Patient gets a CT scan/MRI
2) CT or MRI is uploaded to the supplier who can do image processing/segmentation. The image segmentation is of the patients joint surfaces.
3) The segmented 3D image is used to make a custom medical instrument that has a surface that is the reverse shape of the patients joint surface. ie the custom instrument fits the specific patients joint surface exactly.
4) The medical CAD file of the custom instrument is delivered to a rapid prototyping vendor who will manufacture the custom instrument and physically deliver the custom instrument to a desired location.
There are companies that do offer similar processes already. eg [url removed, login to view] however this company has existing contractual relationships with competitors.
The supplier will need to demonstrate that they can deliver high quality segmentations/ custom instrument designs and control the process with a validated quality system.
The supplier will need to demonstrate that they can maintain confidentiality during the process.
The supplier will need to be willing to undergo external auditing of there processes and quality system on a regular basis.

Sounds interesting. Not sure about the first part of the project, but am sure we can source local rapid prototype suppliers. Let me know. Regards, Ron
