News – May 2015 –
Fairfield, NJ. – Canfield Scientific, the world leader in 2D and 3D clinical photography, announced the latest ground-breaking capability of 360° body imaging in high resolution 3D, at the annual meeting of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS) in Montreal, Canada. With this new feature, a front and back view of the patient is automatically stitched together into a single, seamless wraparound image, giving the physician and patient an unprecedented understanding of the structural and aesthetic appearance of a patient’s body.
Consultations about the posterior of the anatomy can be difficult and often require the use of multiple mirrors or flat, 2D pictures. With VECTRA XT 360° body imaging, the patients will be able to see all of the shapes, curves and folds on their bodies, as well as the proportional impact of various procedures. All of the simulation tools in VECTRA’s Body Sculptor® software module can be used on a 360° image to view body contouring procedures such as abdominoplasty, liposuction and buttock augmentation. These can be used singly or in combination with breast augmentation and mastopexy tools in the Breast Sculptor® module.
Demonstrated for the first time at the recent ASAPS meeting, VECTRA 360° drew unmatched praise from the attendees. Dr. Scott Ingram, Plastic Surgeon from Brisbane, Australia and President of the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (2012-2014) remarked “This is the most exciting thing I’ve seen at the entire conference this year. Nothing else comes close.”
VECTRA XT 360° body imaging will be a standard feature in software Version 5.6. This version will be included with all new systems and provided as a free upgrade to customers with current Canfield Care™ Support & Upgrade agreements.
