Dermatology Solutions launches world’s first VECTRA WB360® 3D whole body imaging solution in a DICOM-based teledermatology service, delivering the most advanced level of care to the broadest possible patient base

Dermatology Solutions in Central Queensland, Australia, is the first in the world to implement Canfield’s WB360 in a teledermatology service, using DICOM file sharing and communication technology. The system generates detailed, high resolution 3D images that are sent first to dermatologists for assessment and diagnosis, then made available to the patient’s GP, enabling more thorough local treatment for patients in remote areas. Clinicians in this Rockhampton office image patients with the system’s 92 high-definition cameras and, using the 3D body mapping technology, identify and track suspicious lesions and rashes.

Practitioners also expect HairMetrix to increase compliance by providing objective evidence of results during a follow-up office visit.

VECTRA WB360® provides the University Hospital in Munich with advanced 3D imaging for plastic surgery and dermatologic skin assessments

The University Hospital in Munich introduced the VECTRA WB360 3D imaging system to its plastic surgery department, enabling doctors to seamlessly create whole body images. After seeing a presentation in New York, Director of Plastic Surgery Ricardo Giunta immediately took interest in the WB360’s advanced technology, which includes 92 HD cameras swiftly taking pictures of the patient at the same time. Now, the WB360 system provides doctors at the University Hospital opportunities to create 3D body mapped images of the patient, monitor pigmented lesions for skin cancer, and measure body volume changes. 

Baptist Health Monitors High-risk Skin Cancer Patients With VECTRA® WB360 3D Imaging Technology

The Miami Cancer Institute at Baptist Health South Florida demonstrates using the VECTRA WB360 to capture whole body images of a patient’s skin to screen for the earliest signs of skin cancer. Dr. Naiara Braghiroli explains how the WB360 stands out against other total body systems with its ability to capture the entire patient’s skin surface with 92 high definition cameras. Using these photos to create a single baseline image of the whole body, the advanced 3D body mapping technology displays all the moles on the patient’s body, helping doctors quickly examine individual lesions and monitor for potential skin cancer.

IntelliStudio® and D200evo Help Prof. Petr Arenberger Provide Skin Exams Across the Czech Republic

The “Anti-Melanoma Pavillion” has been held annually in the Czech Republic for 14 years. It offers patients the opportunity for a whole body skin check without making an appointment at the hospital out-patient department. The “street mole clinic“ began again with its usual long queues of eager patients at Wenceslas Square in Prague. This year, patients were examined using the Canfield IntelliStudio® and D200evo to provide the most effective and fast skin assessment. The popular event is organized by Prof. Petr Arenberger, Director of the University Hospital Kralovske Vinohrady University Hospital in Prague, and Professor and Chairman at the Department of Dermatology. Two additional Anti-Melanoma Pavillion days will be held in the Czech cities of Brno and Ostrava. 

VECTRA® WB360 Brings Cutting Edge Skin Evaluation to Northeastern Australian Skin Clinic

FNQH, a General Practice clinic in Cairns, Queensland has just installed the first VECTRA® WB360 in northeast Australia. The practice sees over 1,000 patients a week and the new system will help the doctors provide comprehensive skin cancer screenings quickly, easily, and more efficiently. The advanced whole body, 3D imaging system allows Dr. Vin Rajeswaran and his medical team to perform a complete inspection of a patient’s skin surface. Using VECTRA’s comprehensive 3D body map, AI-driven software looks for suspicious lesions and, potential melanoma.

Canfield’s VECTRA® WB360 Images Used to Develop an AI-Driven, Automated Nevus Identification Algorithm 

Researchers at the University of Queensland have implemented Canfield’s newly developed artificial intelligence algorithm to detect nevi on 3D body map images from the VECTRA® WB360 3D total body imaging system. Using Canfield’s 3D imaging technology and advanced AI algorithms, researchers from Canfield and the University of Queensland have created a sophisticated system that shows the potential to improve nevi detection accuracy which may help improve estimation of melanoma risk. This groundbreaking solution may also help to limit clinical errors and save clinician time and money.
