patients can study their own images on the computer monitor while clothed and comfortable which creates a better environment for doctor-patient interaction.
Manhattan, New York (PRWEB) October 11, 2009
Board certified Manhattan plastic surgeon Douglas M. Senderoff, MD, FACS http://www.drsenderoff.com announces the arrival of the most advanced computer imaging system on the market today at his Park Avenue, New York office. The Vectra 3-D computer imaging system manufactured by Canfield allows patients to see a simulated 360 degree image of the results of a variety of plastic surgery procedures including breast implants, rhinoplasty, chin augmentation, submental liposuction, facial fillers, and laser procedures.
By using this cutting edge computer technology the Manhattan plastic surgeon's patients can have an active role in the consultation process as they direct the NYC plastic surgeon to make the desired changes to their preoperative image. According to Manhattan plastic surgeon, Douglas M. Senderoff, MD, FACS, "computer imaging allows me to better communicate the intended results of plastic surgery with my patients. I can show them in precise detail the potential outcome of their plastic surgery procedure and see if it meets their expectations."
The Vectra 3-D computer imaging system uses multiple high resolution digital cameras which take several images from different angles in order to produce a 360 view of the patient. Precise anatomical landmarks are then plotted on the photos and measurements are recorded by the computer. By using the Breast Sculptor and Body Sculptor software realistic 360 simulated postoperative images can be created for patients to view immediately. These images can be compared side by side with the preoperative images to see the often dramatic results of the potential plastic surgery procedure.
According to the Manhattan Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Senderoff, "patients can study their own images on the computer monitor while clothed and comfortable which creates a better environment for doctor-patient interaction." After the images are created and the complimentary consultation has concluded a print out of the preoperative photo along with the simulated results of plastic surgery can be printed out for the patient to review at a later date or show to significant others for their opinion.
"The breast imaging software is an excellent tool in helping patients decide how different sized breast implants may look on their body" says Manhattan plastic surgeon, Douglas M. Senderoff, MD, FACS. He adds, "breast implants computer imaging is also very helpful in selecting the size of breast implants in patients with asymmetrical breasts who require different volumes to correct the asymmetry. Breast implant patients can try on different sizes of implants and select the size that they are comfortable with."
When it comes to Rhinoplasty the Canfield computer imaging system allows the NYC Plastic Surgeon to show patients how subtle changes to the nasal contour can produce significant improvements in facial appearance. By using the computer imaging system Dr. Senderoff can also accommodate patients who seek a more drastic change. In addition, by adding a chin implant patients can see how facial harmony can be created without the need for aggressive nasal surgery.
While the Canfield Vectra 3-D computer imaging system is a valuable tool in demonstrating to patients the possible results of plastic surgery it is not a guarantee of how patients will look after their surgery. Computer imaging is however, an excellent way to improve the consultation process by increasing effective communication between patient and surgeon.
