Groundbreaking New Imaging Technology

Portrait 3D, with its new physics-based algorithm, is a huge advance in breast imaging

Axis Three, the leader and pioneer of surgical simulation tools for the cosmetic surgery industry, today announced the general availability of the Portrait 3D - Breast, the world's first simulation software based on physics-driven tissue typing. This is the fifth generation of the Portrait 3D product and a major breakthrough in the surgical simulation and imaging industries.

"Portrait 3D, with its new physics-based algorithm, is a huge advance in breast imaging," said Dr. William Adams, Jr. "The program provides the surgeon with a comprehensive consultation tool that allows the patient to better understand many aspects of breast surgery. In addition, for the first time in the history of breast augmentation, patients have something with a scientific basis to provide a three dimensional glimpse of what they actually may look like post-operatively."    

Axis Three's revolutionary Tissue Behavior Simulation (TBS) technology accurately combines breast and tissue-type characterizations with specific implants from implant manufacturers catalogues. These unique algorithms will now allow surgeons to use the patient's specific body attributes, such as their parenchyma, glandular contribution and skin elasticity, when simulating various procedures.

"Axis Three's scientific approach allows patients of varying ages and body types to be simulated using a completely customizable algorithm that leaves the standard 'one fit for all' approach far behind," said Jim Blumel, VP of US Operations. "This innovation is magnified when compared to existing 3D breast systems that are not science-based and are essentially just 'pretty pictures.'"

Axis Three also announced the Portrait 3D - Face product, which will simulate surgical and non-surgical face procedures, will be beta tested and launched in the coming weeks.

Axis Three will be exhibiting at the 88th Annual Meeting and Aesthetic Symposium of the American Association of Plastic Surgeons on March 21-25, 2009 at the Westin Mission Hills Resort in Rancho Mirage, California. Anyone interested in seeing a demonstration of the Portrait 3D - Breast and Portrait 3D - Face systems are invited to attend.
