The Enterprise

DQBITO is a Spanish SME with two employees dedicated to introduce technical and engineering resources to solve problems in the health sector and designing detailed 3D anatomical models. These 3D models are used in many health specialties, built based on all the data gathered in medical tests, helping the professionals to make decisions and explore different solutions in complex surgery. It also designs and builds prosthesis for people and elements to meet clinical and surgical special needs.

 

How HPC makes the difference

Tooth virtual 3D model for implantological surgery

The challenge in designing virtual models of human body parts is to get as close as possible to reality, considering the high amount of data and variables to take into account, due to the geometric complexity of the elements involved. The closer you get to reality, the higher your possibilities to success. If you can get a detailed model for each patient, you can develop the best solution for each one. In dental implantology get the most detailed model of a patient anatomy is a key to success, because of the high loads involved in it. To get the highest detail level and load simulation, HPC infrastructure is a must, so the enterprise relies on CESGA ́s infrastructure and expertise, to achieve it. DQBITO Biomedical engineering founder member Iago González claimed that CESGA ́s HPC infrastructure and expertise was so helpful to achieve the best treatment and regain health and well being for its customers.
