Inferior Breast-Chest Contour Detection in 3D Images of the Female Torso. L Zhao, A Cheong, G Reece, M Fingeret, S Shah, F Merchant.

Date: September 2016 Source: IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine (Volume: PP, Issue: 99). Abstract: Stereophotogrammetry is finding increased use in clinical breast surgery, both for breast reconstruction after oncological procedures and cosmetic augmentation and reduction. The ability to visualize and quantify morphological features of the breast facilitates pre-operative planning and postoperative […]

3D surface imaging of the human female torso in upright to supine positions. GP Reece, F Merchant, J Andon, H Khatam, K. Ravi-Chandar, J Weston, MC Fingeret, CR Lane, KS Duncan, MK Markey.

Date: April 2015. Source: Medical, Engineering and Physics, Volume 37, Issue 4, Pages 375–383. Abstract: Three-dimensional (3D) surface imaging of breasts is usually done with the patient in an upright position, which does not permit comparison of changes in breast morphology with changes in position of the torso. In theory, these limitations may be eliminated if […]

Visualization and Quantification of Female Breast Morphology During Breast Reconstruction. AL Cheong, GP Reece, MC Fingeret, F Merchant.

Date: October 2014. Source: 3D Body Scanning Conference, Lugano, Switzerland. Abstract: Breast reconstruction is an integral part of the breast cancer treatment process and has shown to positively impact the patient’s psychosocial adjustment and quality of life. Three-dimensional (3D) visualization and quantification of the breast for different types of reconstruction procedures can allow for a […]
