Hi Randy,
the right person to contact would be Dr. Cesar Oleskovicz <> from brazil. He uses CT scans to design implants and prosthesis using SliceOmatic software.He can guide you exactly.

What I would like to do is take the data from a medical CT scan and convert it into a type that can be used by SolidWorks and/or ProE to create a 3D solid model. Additionally, I would like to be able to save the model as an STL file to later be recreated in resin using the stereolithography process. I also would like to be able to manipulate the 3D virtual model thus created (in SolidWorks etc.) so that a prosthesis can be designed using the existing geometry of that model for reference. The ultimate goal being creation of the prosthesis in resin, also using stereolithography. While I have found several very expensive programs claiming to do these tasks, I need to locate an inexpensive solution to these goals. I am working on this project with another engineer and a physician, without payment, in an effort to find a solution which should bring relief to a friend who has suffe
red greatly from a physical abnormality. Any support or information furthering this project would be greatly appreciated. Randy HowardMechanical DesignerEverett, WA USA
