e-Stetix is an amazing tool for every plastic surgeon. Being able to generate a 3D simulation from standard photos is absolutely unique.
Lausanne, Switzerland (PRWEB) February 14, 2012
The paper presents the development and evaluation of a novel computer tool that allows individual reconstruction and simulation of 3-dimensional (3D) soft tissue from ordinary digital photos of breasts.
The e-Stetix 3D consultation tool introduced in this paper features a web-based, worldwide-accessible preoperative surgical planning platform for plastic surgeons, and is evaluated through a quality control analysis by comparing 3D laser scans of patients with the 3D reconstructions obtained with e-Stetix from original 2-dimensional (2D) pictures of the same patients.
Results from quantitative and qualitative evaluations from plastic surgeons demonstrate the potential of this new emerging technology and consolidate the scientific validity of the e-Stetix web-based system, as a viable alternative to existing ‘3D scanner’ technologies.
About Journal of Medical Internet Research
The "Journal of Medical Internet Research" (JMIR; ISSN 1438-8871, Medline-abbreviation: J Med Internet Res), founded in 1999, is a leading health informatics and health services/health policy journal (ranked first by impact factor in these disciplines).
JMIR was the first open access journal covering health informatics, and the first international scientific peer-reviewed journal on all aspects of research, information and communication in the healthcare field using Internet and Intranet-related technologies; a broad field, which is nowadays called "eHealth".
