Fresh and radical ideas and continuous research and development are the keys to technological progress. At Planmeca this is the rule we live and work by – and this is the reason we are also at Junction 2017.
Planmeca is one of the world's leading health tech and dental equipment manufacturers. Digital revolution is transforming the entire field of health care and the possibilities of this transformation are limitless. Our mission is to make patient care better and safer by helping the health care professionals to give their patients the best possible care with the help of modern technology. Planmeca challenges the participants of this hackathon to embrace this mission, but throw away all limitations and think outside the box while doing so!
Main prize 5000€ to be shared between the winning team members.
Ultimately our mission is to make patient care better and safer by helping the health care professionals to make more accurate diagnoses and give their patients the best possible care. We want participants to embrace this mission, but throw away all limitations and think outside the box while doing so!
The following criteria will be used to evaluate the performance and ideas of the teams:
Participants will have a chance to see and use real patient data in a form of a 3D virtual patient. Our mentors on site will coach participants and help them with any arising questions.
Here are image data files for the teams attending our challenge. See the instructions for opening the provided sample images below and feel free to import provided data to your application.
Together with Microsoft we’ll provide all teams with access to the Microsoft Azure cloud. In Azure, you’ll be able to use e.g. machine learning and AI capabilities, execute Azure Batch Blender processes and use Cognitive Services like Computer Vision. We’ll have Microsoft engineers on-site to help the teams with their projects.
Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) is a standard for storing and transmitting medical images enabling the integration of medical imaging devices such as scanners, servers, workstations, printers, network hardware, and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) from multiple manufacturers.
How to access Dicom files:
A useful link for converting Dicom files to other formats for your application: "How to Create 3D Printable Models from Medical Scans in 30 Minutes Using Free Software: Osirix, Blender, and Meshmixer”
Files for your use:
These files are optical scans (or digital impressions) of the patient’s teeth and gums in STL, OBJ and PLY formats. The data has been acquired with Planmeca intraoral scanners.
How to access STL, OBJ and PLY files:
Files for your use:
These files include a virtual patient data set. This means a combination of three different 3D datasets (photo, X-ray data and digital impression) which form one complete 3D model of the patient. Planmeca was the first company to combine three different types of 3D data with one X-ray unit.
How to access the files:
Files for your use:
A phantom is a real human skull molded into plastic. We use phantoms in product development and production to test X-ray device’s performance. We can radiate phantoms with X-rays as much as we like without harming anyone. 3D X-ray (Dicom) image of phantom, a ProFace 3D photo of phantom’s surface (OBJ) and a surface file (STL) created from bones: “Dicom_obj_stl_Junction_virtual_patient3_Phantom_pirjo.zip" , "Dicom_obj_stl_Junction_virtual_patient4_Phantom_pekka.zip”
Some extra 3D images (DICOM, ProFace OBJ and STL) with different resolutions from different phantoms for your use. Just in case you need more images:
