The Naderi Center is pleased to use the revolutionary imaging systems by Canfield Scientific. With these systems, our plastic surgeons can improve pre-operative planning by setting realistic expectations and ensuring that patients are well-informed of the options available to them as well as any limitations there may be. Let’s dive deeper into what these state-of-the-art systems are and how they work.
The Vectra M3 face and neck system simultaneously takes a number of photos of the patient from different points of view. It does this through multiple cameras. Once the photos are taken, a special Sculptor 3D software constructs an extremely accurate three-dimensional image of the patient’s face and neck.
Our plastic surgeons can use the sculptor software to make changes to the dimensions and volumes of the face and stimulate the actual results of surgery. These changes can be viewed from virtually any angle and compared to the original image.
Thanks to the Vectra M3 system, we can sit down with our patients and ensure that they have a realistic vision and know exactly what they can expect. The system gives us the chance to accurately communicate the goals of the procedure.
When is Vectra M3 Used?
Here at the Naderi Center, we use the Vectra M3 system before a variety of face and neck procedures such as facelift, neck lift, chin augmentation, and rhinoplasty. Our plastic surgeons and patients have both found it to be a very useful tool during the consultation and preoperative phases. It’s truly remarkable to be able to show patients what their results may look like in 3D and reduces the risk of patients having unrealistic expectations.
How the Vectra M3 Works
When we decide to use the Vectra M3 system, we’ll ask a patient to stand in front of the device. Then, we’ll turn it on and it’ll snap six 2 dimensional photographs with six sophisticated cameras simultaneously. It’ll also take accurate measurements to instantly produce a 3D image of the patient’s body. The image will be so clear that our plastic surgeons will be able to see the pores, freckles, and pigmented lesions on a patient’s neck or face if they zoom in.
The Mirror Suite is a robust imaging solution that contains PhotoFile, PhotoTools, Rejuvenation, and 2D simulation tools. It is specifically designed to assist with managing images, communicating visually with patients, and providing aesthetic stimulation. Let’s take a closer look at how each of these tools works on their own.
PhotoFile acts as the backbone for medical imaging systems. It is designed to keep all of a patient’s medical images accessible while ensuring HIPAA compliance. Mirror PhotoFile features a number of tools that are extremely valuable to patients and plastic surgeons.
The loupe tool allows us to closely examine a patient’s skin to pinpoint problem areas and make the ideal treatment recommendations. With the side by side view, we can track a patient’s treatment progress while demonstrating their results.
In addition, PhotoFile gives our plastic surgeons the opportunity to export images to a powerpoint presentation that can be created as an informational resource for the patient. It also has a patient consultation app for iPad which serves as the perfect way to educate patients during their consultations.
Last but not least, the mirroring software in PhotoFile allows our plastic surgeons to stay in touch with patients via a secure, password-protected portal. Patients are welcome to log in to the portal to look at their photographs, treatment recommendations, and treatment progress from the comfort of their own homes.
PhotoTools is an effective way for us to enhance communication and optimize images. Its color and orientation matching feature gets rid of any color shifts and modifies image size and rotation to ensure consistency.
Split-face comparison is used to demonstrate asymmetry while labels and whiteboarding allow for easy annotation. PhotoTools makes it a breeze for our plastic surgeons to measure calibrated distances as well as angles and proportions so they can improve the way they plan and analyze procedures.
With the MatchPose image overlay, we can capture the ideal before and after photos so that patients can get a true look at their expected results.
TThe rejuvenation tool provides us with an instant look at the types of results patients can expect after a variety of skin rejuvenation procedures. It gives us the chance to stimulate the benefits of dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, lasers, and other popular skin solutions. Rejuvenation helps patients get a true understanding of the types of results they may enjoy after their procedures.
We have discovered that 2D stimulation is the perfect way for us to show patients what types of results they can expect. It plays a key role in helping them make informed decisions and encouraging them to ask the right questions before committing to a certain procedure. Our plastic surgeons use 2D stimulation for a wide range of procedures including facelifts, rhinoplasties, chin augmentation, neck lifts, and liposuction.
Frequently Asked Questions About Canfield Imaging Systems
What is Canfield Scientific?
Canfield Scientific has earned a reputation as the global leader in imaging systems. They have revolutionized a variety of industries including pharmaceutical, biotechnology, cosmetics, medical, and skin care.
Its mission is to provide high quality, state-of-the-art, imaging solutions to physicians and the healthcare industry. The Naderi Center couldn’t be more proud to use their imaging solutions in our Virginia and Maryland surgical centers.
What procedures can the Canfield imaging systems benefit?
We use Canfield imaging systems before performing a wide variety of aesthetic procedures. Some of the most common ones include rhinoplasty, chin augmentation, facelift, browlift, neck lift, breast augmentation, microdermabrasion, and body contouring.
Why does the Naderi Center use Canfield imaging systems?
Our plastic surgeons used another imaging system in the past. While it was an asset to our practice, it was nowhere near as advanced as the Canfield imaging systems. We appreciate the Canfield imaging systems for the precision and flexibility they offer. From the moment we have implemented these imaging systems, our patients have become better informed, made smarter decisions, and visualized more realistic results.
Who is a good candidate for the Canfield imaging systems?
Almost any patient who is interested in plastic surgery can benefit from the Canfield imaging systems. They can help them understand their options and set realistic expectations for their results.
A Canfield imaging system may be an invaluable resource for a liposuction patient who hopes to visualize their new, slimmer physique. It can also be a good option a patient interested in facial procedures who wants to see how they can achieve a more youthful and refreshed rejuvenation. The system may also be valuable for a breast augmentation patient who wishes to visualize what different size implants may look like on them.
Are before and after photos of other patients still shared?
While we believe that there’s no better way for patients to visualize potential results than the Canfield imaging systems, we’d be happy to show them before and after photos of real patients if they wish. We will do whatever it takes to ensure they feel confident prior to undergoing a procedure.
