|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Hypertrophic Scarring After Facial Burn: A Pilot, Observational Study of Static and Dynamic Measurements of Facial Scars With the 3-D Scanner Through the Scar Maturation Process|
- Scar maturation [ Time Frame: 5.5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Can a 3-D scanner measure static and dynamic changes
|Study Start Date:||October 2005|
|Study Completion Date:||February 2011|
|Primary Completion Date:||February 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Device: 3-Dimensional Color Scanning
Subjects will have 11 clinic visits over a 2-year period. An initial scan of the subject's head and neck will be made. Ten reproducible landmarks on the face and neck will be determined. The subject will return for follow up scans at Day 14, Day 28 and Month 2,6,9,12,18 and 24.
