2. Services accessible via the Artery3D Application
2.1 Built-in Services
Professional Users may access the following Services built in the ARtery 3D application:
information and content that has been assembled only to provide you with information about the anatomy of the client’s facial arteries.
The Professional User - after being registered on the website of Augmented Anatomy - will fill in a dedicated MRI prescription form for each individual patient (also available online,on https://radiology.augmented-anatomy.com). The Professional User will send his/her patient with this completed prescription form to a radiology service of his/her choice and notify Augmented Anatomy hereof. This radiology service will receive an infrared lamp from Augmented Anatomy, which is a condition to successfully perform the MRI.
Afterwards, the Professional User will be notified by email and/or by push notification through the ARtery 3D application when the MRI data of his/her patient are uploaded by the MRI department on the Augmented Anatomy Database and again when the images are processed and converted by Augmented Anatomy into 3D volumes that can be used by the ARtery 3D application. At that time, he/she will be able to use the data concerning the patients facial arteries - as registered during the MRI - in the ARtery 3D application on his/her smartphone.
After login in with their individual login name and password, Professional Users will have access to an overview of their registered patients, meaning the patients they have sent for an MRI examination. The Users will only see an overview of their patients, within a searchable list and by the use of certain parameters such as the name, sex, and date of birth. In addition, the user will have access to the MRI data of each patient and the frontal video that was taken, but not to the 3D volumes, nor the Augmented Reality images. There will be no possibility to store screenshots of the application on the website.
When using the ARtery 3D application, the User will have access to the list of patients through specific search queries. For each patient, the best possible AR-image of the arterial network will be downloadable from the Augmented Anatomy Database after which it can be viewed through the application. The User is not allowed to take screenshots of the application for offline use.
Should a patient choose to switch from professional user, a request from the new professional user has to be submitted to Augmented Anatomy to access that patient’s data. A subsequent request will be sent from the ARtery 3D platform to that specific patient, by email and/or text message, in which the patient needs to confirm his/her consent. Once the consent is verified by Augmented Anatomy, the new professional user will have access to the 3D images of that specific patient.
Any patient has the right to deny a certain Professional User access to his/her 3D images by sending an email to email@example.com with their request and the full name, address and contact details of the professional user.
2.2 Services provided through third-party service providers
You will find the dedicated ARtery 3D application in the app store of Apple and Android devices (App store and Play Store, respectively). In general, the business terms of the relevant platform providers (over which We have no influence) apply there; these are not part of our terms and conditions nor our contractual relationship with you as the User of our Software. This also applies to the business terms and conditions of your mobile device or service supplier.
We work with various partners to ensure the optimal use of our Software. These include third-parties that supply us or our Users directly with certain information and other service providers.
As the User provides an MRI taken by a third party (indicated by the User), Augmented Anatomy has the unquestionable right to decline any MRI if this is of too poor quality, or does not have the correct information to provide the desired quality of ARtery 3D images. Augmented Anatomy will inform the User if the MRI does not meet the standards. The User will have the right to submit another MRI without extra cost.
3. Personal account on the ARtery3D Application
If you subscribe to our Services on behalf of a business, you represent to Augmented Anatomy that you have the authority to bind that business and that your acceptance of this Agreement will be treated as acceptance by that business. Contracts with businesses that employ multiple health care practitioners need be negotiated on an individual basis with Augmented Anatomy.
As long as you comply with this Agreement, Augmented Anatomy grants you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-sublicensable right to access and use the Software and access the 3D facial anatomy models as it is intended to be used and in accordance with this Agreement and applicable law. Augmented Anatomy grants you no other rights, implied or otherwise. You have no right to download, store or capture the 3D facial anatomy models without the explicit consent of Augmented Anatomy as these models belong exclusively to Augmented Anatomy. If the contract with Augmented Anatomy comes to an end, you will no longer have access to the 3D facial anatomy models. The raw MRI images however will remain accessible.
You may not use the Software to disseminate any unlawful or other objectionable material, or to harm others or us. You must not resell or redistribute any part of the Software or access to the Software, including the sale or purchase of an Account. You must not use or attempt to use any unauthorized means to modify, reroute, or gain access to the Software or use any automated process or service (such as a bot, a spider, periodic caching of information stored by Augmented Anatomy, or meta-searching) to access or use the Service or to copy or scrape data; or obtain (or try to obtain) any data or content from the Software, except the data or content that We intend to make available to you.
4. Warnings regarding the use of information and content provided on ARtery3D
Professional Users remain fully and personally responsible for their use of the ARtery 3D Software and our Services under conditions of ordinary law. Our Software provides information and content that has been assembled only to provide you with information about one’s anatomy. The use of the ARtery 3D application cannot replace an adequate anatomical knowledge, and can only be used by health care practitioners who have appropriate training and experience in facial injections. It is the responsibility of each health care practitioner to consider the clinical and medical status of each patient and to be knowledgeable about all aspects of the cosmetic procedure and the potential complications that may occur in each specific case.
Under no circumstances does ARtery 3D issue medical therapy recommendations or medical advice of any kind. The data provided must only be analysed by a qualified healthcare professional. No content - no matter whether provided by Augmented Anatomy itself, our cooperation partners, or Users - can be understood as replacement for adequate training in facial anatomy and its variations as well as in techniques for injectables or any kind of facial procedures. It does not serve as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.
ARtery 3D does not provide recommendations nor any explicit of implied warranties, statements of affirmations (with statements of but not limited to warranties of ownership of non-disputes, of the implied warranties of merchantability of fitness for a particular purpose) regarding the service of any merchandise, information of service offered through its Services.
In addition, ARtery 3D does not warrant that the use of the Software services will be free of technical issues, including, but not limited to, unavailability of information, downtime, service interruptions, viruses, and you understand that you are responsible for investigating sufficient procedures and checkpoints to meet your specific requirements for accuracy of data input and output.
Augmented Anatomy will not be liable nor provide refunds for any limitations or errors caused by use of the application with other devices, software or operating system versions than those described in the technical requirements
We cannot be held responsible for default projection of arteries on moving patients or movements of the device on which the application is installed.
Augmented Anatomy can in no circumstances guarantee that all relevant vessels will be displayed on the application. As many events or circumstances can have an influence
on the quality of the image, such as, but not limited to, movement of the patient during the MRI procedure, the way the procedure is executed, the presence of metal wires,
dental fillings or implants or any other metal or synthetic implants that might interfere with the result of the MRI and the arteries that are visualised.
ARtery 3D can never guarantee to visualise all arteries of the face. Only arteries that are visualised by the MRI can be segmented and shown in the Software.
Artery 3D might lose some vessels in the isolation process, depending on the sensitivity of the algorithm.
In any case, ARtery 3D cannot be held responsible for any complications happening should the ARtery 3D Software be used in combination with filler injections,
as ARtery 3D is a software program that only allows visualization of facial arteries as an aid to better understand facial anatomy, not as a guidance for injections.
In case any serious incident occurred in relation to the device, this should be reported to Augmented Anatomy.

If you do not accept any Change, you must inform Us by e-mail to contact@Augmented-anatomy.com, upon which you can continue using our services to finish your outstanding balance. If the balance is not finished within 12 months, Augmented Anatomy has the right to terminate the contract and pay back any outstanding balance.
The 1 month notice period will not apply where a Change is required by law or relates to the addition of a new service, extra functionality to the existing Service or any other change which neither reduces your rights nor increases your responsibilities. In such instances, the Change will be made without prior notice to you and shall be effective immediately upon giving notice of it.
With the exception of the cases mentioned below, neither party may assign, transfer or delegate any of its rights or obligations arising from this agreement (including, but not limited to, claims with respect to this agreement) without prior and written consent of the other party, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld. Augmented Anatomy may, after sending a notification to the Professional User, outsource its obligations and responsibilities arising from this agreement to its affiliates or subsidiaries without discharging Augmented Anatomy of its obligations in the context of this agreement.
Any failure by a party to enforce the other party’s strict performance of any provision of this agreement shall not constitute a waiver of its rights as defined in this agreement, legal or equitable rights or of any other provision or rights to subsequently enforce any other provision of this agreement.
These terms and conditions and the entire legal relationship between Augmented Anatomy and the User is subject exclusively to Belgian law. However, as a consumer the User enjoys the protection of mandatory laws in the country in which it is located or habitually resident.
If any provision from this agreement is deemed to be unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, this provision shall not affect the other provision of this agreement. Instead, this unenforceable provision shall be construed as though more narrowly drawn insofar as this is necessary to make it enforceable, so as to effect the original intent of the parties, as set out in this agreement, as closely as possible.
The place of fulfilment and sole court of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from these terms and conditions is agreed as the head office of Augmented Anatomy in Ghent, Belgium. Mandatory conflicts of laws in favour of consumers remain unaffected.
