Canfield Scientific specializes in photographic applications for aesthetic medicine. Thousands of practitioners worldwide use its products for patient consultations. The Canfield Imaging Systems, a division of Canfield Scientific, developed the VECTRA 3D Simulation Technology, which the new breed of surgeons uses in Breast Surgery.
What It Does
The state-of-the-art VECTRA 3D cameras can capture a three-dimensional photo of the subject. The multiple cameras are used to take different photos from different points of view.
The Sculptor software processes the 3D photograph. The virtual model is then displayed on a computer monitor. Once the model is seen on screen, the doctor will be able to rotate or view it from any angle. The software also enables the doctor to apply tools in the software to change the shape, size, and even the position of breasts to achieve the appearance desired by the patient.
If the patient approves of the result, the doctor will develop a surgical plan. Basically, the imaging gives the patient a peek on the outcome of the cosmetic procedure.
Here are some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about the New VECTRA 3D:
“Could I choose from the different available implants?”
Yes. Because of the Sculptor 3D software, a patient will be able to see how her breasts would look like with different types and sizes of implants.
“Is the simulated result accurate? Should I expect the actual result to be similar with the simulated result?”
Yes. VECTRA simulations are based on the actual implants the surgeon will use.
“Will the software help the surgeon determine the size of my breasts?”
Yes. The VECTRA software has special tools that can show not just the breasts’ size but their position as well. VECTRA analysis will help the surgeon develop the necessary surgical plan to address the concern on breast size.
“How do I know that I am a good candidate for breast augmentation through VECTRA?”
Talk to the surgeon first. Through consultation with the doctor, the patient will be shown the possibilities involved in the surgery with the use of VECTRA.
“How much will VECTRA imaging cost?”
The cost may depend on the type of procedure the patient will undergo, but as for the Breast Surgery, it would be best for the patient to prepare thousands of dollars for the imaging and simulation service.
