   Materialize has various powerful CT-Scan data post processing software
which are compatible with most of the commercially available medical
CT-scanners. As I read from their brochure, their software called MedCAD is
used for interfacing to CAD systems via IGES interface. But I don't have
detailed information on that.

>Hope this is of some help!!
   Yes, thank you.
