Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) and is a standard for handling, storing, printing, and transmitting information in medical imaging. A DICOM file is a series of images generated from a CT scan and consists of many hundreds of individual cross-sections of an object. The combination of all of these 2D images creates a 3D volume which can be processed into a DICOM file suitable for 3D printing.
Yasojima can process and manipulate DICOM data and files in order to produce 3D printed models with 3D printing or additive manufacturing.
The attached membrane and the difference in the threshold value of the brain with above and below make it very difficult to extract the brain data. 3D brain data files are large in size complex, processes have to be taken to have a complete 3D data for modeling.
As with the brain, it is difficult to extract 3D data of blood vessels all at once due to the difference in threshold values, the data needs to be collected little by little while controlling extracting values.
