Advanced Imaging and Modeling

Our Vision

We aim to become the global center of excellence for creating clinical insights through 3D/4D modeling and imaging, allowing us to perfect our vision of human anatomy and pathology and revolutionize the health care industry.

AIM launched in 2013 when pediatric cardiologist Dr. Matthew Bramlet, Children's Hospital of Illinois, developed a process with Jump Sim engineers to convert two-dimensional images of the heart into 3D-printed replicas for pre-surgical planning. The first heart printed at Jump changed the course of a 9-month-old girl’s surgery, leading to a new standard of care for the most complex surgical cases within OSF. 

We now have a team of engineers at Jump and the University of Illinois School of Engineering producing exact anatomical digital images that can be printed or integrated into virtual environments like augmented and virtual realities.

Through the generosity of our benefactors and partners, AIM is able to provide leading edge solutions that improve patient outcomes at no cost to them and transform our understanding of human anatomy and pathology.

AIM is a member of the Jump ARCHES collaboration.

3D Heart Library

Dr. Matthew Bramlet’s work with the Jump Advanced Imaging and Modeling team has led to partnerships with many physicians around the nation and the establishment of the National Institutes of Health 3D Heart Library on the 3D Print Exchange.

The goal of the library, of which Dr. Bramlet is the curator, is to share models of hearts with clinicians across the world to improve our understanding of congenital heart disease.
