Applications and limitations of using patient-specific 3D printed molds in autologous breast reconstruction. S Hummelink, AC Verhulst, TJJ Maal, DJO Ulrich.

Date: October 2018. Source: European Journal of Plastic Surgery, Volume 41, Issue 5, pp 571–576. Background: Over the last years, several techniques have been proposed to improve the outcome of autologous breast reconstruction procedures. One of these innovations describes patient-specific, three-dimensional (3D) printed breast molds for intraoperative use based on 3D stereophotogrammetry. In this article, […]

Breast Curvature of the Upper and Lower Breast Mound: 3D Analysis of Patients who Underwent Breast Reconstruction. J LEE, GP REECE, MK MARKEY.

Date: October 16-17, 2012. Source: 3rd International Conference on 3D Body Scanning Technologies 2012, Lugano, Switzerland Abstract: Quantitative and objective methods to evaluate the morphology of the reconstructed breast may help plastic surgeons improve their surgical practice, and thus ultimately help breast cancer survivors derive the intended psychosocial benefits of reconstruction. Recently, we developed a […]

Semi-Automated Registration of 3D Torso Images from Breast Reconstruction Surgery. LJ Zhao, SK Shah, GP Reece, MA Crosby, EK Beahm, MC Fingeret, MK Markey, FA Merchant.

Date: October 16-17, 2012 Source: 3rd International Conference on 3D Body Scanning Technologies 2012, Lugano, Switzerland. Abstract: The applications for three-dimensional (3D) scanners in breast reconstruction surgery, which is a multi-step process lasting at times 2-3 years are increasing. In order to quantify changes occurring in the reconstructed breasts over time, it is necessary to […]
