Shanghai Ninth People's Hospital
Introduction
Shanghai Ninth People's Hospital, Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine, is a Tier-3 comprehensive hospital with 4 academicians of Chinese Academy of Engineering, 4 key national disciplines, 9 key national medicine disciplines, and 4 key national 211 engineering disciplines. It is also home to some of the nation's top departments in plastic surgery, oral medicine, orthopedics, and others. As a national-level key discipline, the Ninth Hospital's orthopedic department represents the nations’ highest standards in orthopedic disease diagnosis and treatment.
Challenges
  • As 3D printing technology developed, 3D-printed parts could be used in an increasing number of orthopedic surgeries in place of traditional standardized orthopedic implants. This helps to realize personalized and precise treatment, and increases patients' quality of life after surgeries. However, 3D printing surgery planning requires the participation of the imaging and orthopedic departments as well as 3D printing engineers, and the process is cumbersome. There is also a lot of manual doctor work required, and it takes a long time for the medical staff to collaborate with engineers. All of these factors directly affect surgery efficiency, accuracy, and outcomes, which refrains a wide adoption of this advanced technology.
Result
The SenseCare Smart Health Platform is a high-performance auxiliary medical diagnosis solution which uses a rich set of image post-processing technologies and leading AI algorithms that are independently researched and developed by SenseTime. It provides smart tools for different clinical departments to satisfy the needs of the full processes of diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. By deploying the server within the hospital and connecting it with the hospital's data system, the SenseCare Smart Health Platform comprehensively serves various departments within the Ninth Hospital such as the imaging department, orthopedics department, and the 3D printing center. Doctors from different departments only need to open the web page and log into the SenseCare Smart Health Platform to conveniently use the various smart services available on the platform. For the planning of a pelvic tumor surgery , the SenseCare Smart Health Platform greatly increases the communication efficiency between the orthopedic department, the imaging department, and the 3D printing center engineers using multi-modal image data for the automatic reconstruction and accurate segmentation of tumor tissues and normal bones. This relieves doctors from sketching manually, which is troublesome, and can be not as accurate. The product can also output 3D printing files according to the finalized plan, reducing the time it takes to prepare the surgical implants.
