White Light Scanning to Aid Body Contouring: A Pilot Project
A white light scanner can more accurately measure body contouring subjects than standard anthropomorphic methods.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||White Light Scanning to Aid Body Contouring: A Pilot Project|
- To study whether the scanner was faster and more accurate than anthropometric measurements. [ Time Frame: 9 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The scanner and anthropometric measurements will be compared for accuracy and fidelity of collection. Anthropometric tape measurements will be compared to measurement extraction profiles provided by the scanner.Conclusions will be drawn based on the data collected.
|Study Start Date:||January 2005|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||August 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
PROSPECTIVE BODY CONTOURING SUBJECTS
It is anticipated that the participants will undergo body contouring procedures including lipoplasty [internal fat suction removal], abdominoplasty [surgical removal of lower abdominal skin and fat], breast reduction [surgical removal of breast skin, fat, and breast tissue to reduce breast size], breast augmentation [surgical breast enlargement], thigh lift [surgical removal of upper thigh tissue], and brachioplasty [surgical removal of upper arm tissue].
These procedures will be evaluated by pre- and post-operative digital scans, analog measurements, and clinical examinations and photographs.
A 3-D digital body camera that employs non-intrusive white light phase profilometry and 24 coordinated charge-coupled cameras scans and produces a "point cloud" image of the subject. The result of the two-minute scan process is an accurate three-dimensional body model of the subject, consisting of over 1.2 million surface points. The point cloud is compressed to provide programmable measurement extraction profiles (MEP's) that automatically extracts linear and circumferential measurements. Subjects are scanned and anthropometrically measured pre-operatively, and at 3, 6 and 9 months post-op.
