JSR Corporation (JSR) announced that it has agreed to acquire Lexi Co., Ltd. (Lexi) a medical 3D software company. Through this acquisition, JSR will establish a new business in life sciences by integrating Lexi's 3D software technology with JSR's 3D printing and materials technologies. The JSR Group is focused on creating novel value and capitalizing on the trend toward digitization in the medical and life sciences industries.
Lexi's advanced medical 3D software technology can analyze and process 3D data according to your needs. Lexi automatically constructs 3D data of skeletal and organizational structures derived from digital image data (generally called "DICOM data") obtained by CT or MRI using proprietary algorithms. Its 3D surgical simulation software "Zed View(r) series" has been adopted by many hospitals in Japan for use in orthopedic surgery, such as artificial hip joint replacement surgery and knee replacement surgery.
