The 3dMDtorso System was delivered to its first customer in 2001. With the valuable input of a number of 3dMD customers, the 3dMDtorso System was re-engineered in 2006 to take a more flexible approach to patient imaging providing the clinic or research institution with a variety of shape capture options to ensure optimum surface area coverage whether the clinician is assessing requires a breast augmentation, lift, reduction, or reconstruction procedure. Today, 3dMDtorso Systems are in daily use in institutions and practices around the world.
3dMD’s aim has been to preserve the unparalleled subject coverage and proven simplicity of patient positioning and deliver a much more flexible configuration that is easy to use on even the most challenging of cases. As the 3dMDtorso System is designed to be modular, you have the system configuration options of a two viewpoint system in which coverage area is optimized for augmentation patients, a three viewpoint system, or a four viewpoint system which is optimized for all sizes in support of breast reduction patients. Regardless of system configuration, all machine vision cameras are tightly synchronized to capture the entire surface in only 1.5 milliseconds to eliminate any motion artifacts.
Once you position your patient in front of the system, all images are captured in one click, enabling your patients to maintain a sense of modesty during the process. You can capture the 3dMD image at the beginning of the patient consultation, process it immediately, and then sit down with your patient and her digital 3D image to start discussing next steps. Not only can you take before and after images to quantify and compare the results, you have the ability for very complex cases to take a series of images throughout treatment to help evaluate whether there is a need for further surgical intervention or treatment modification.
- Coverage: 180-degree torso capture including under the breast
- Capture speed: ~1.5 milliseconds at highest resolution
- Geometry Generation: Depending on requirements, two, three, or four modular units of 6, 9, or 12 machine vision cameras and an industrial-grade flash system synchronized in a single capture
