VISIA Skin Analysis Encourages Study Participants to Improve Sun Protection Habits

In a recent study on sun exposure and healthy skin habits, researchers from NYU and Boston University found that participants were more likely to improve their approach to sun protection after viewing images that showed their personal sun damage. Using Canfield’s VISIA® Complexion Analysis system, doctors performed a detailed sub-surface facial skin analysis and shared the resulting images with the participants. The study is published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology.

medGadget touts the importance of the VECTRA WB360 in whole body monitoring of skin lesions over time

Canfield Scientific (Parsippany, NJ) has recently installed the first commercial VECTRA WB360 whole-body skin lesion mapping system. Skin cancer can develop from lesions on the skin, such as moles. If a lesion begins to change shape or size it might be turning cancerous. For people at risk of skin cancer, such as those who have already suffered from the disease, it is important to monitor the lesions on their skin to see if any are beginning to show signs of cancer.

Dermatology World reports on the role of Canfield's WB360 in MSKCC's multi-faceted approach to melanoma monitoring

Detecting and treating the first signs of melanoma is the best way to minimize morbidity and mortality. Two-dimensional total body photography marked the first step in providing a "road map" to lesions that bear watching. Building on that concept, Allan Halpern MD, chief of the dermatology service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, teamed with Canfield Scientific to develop and test an imaging method that creates a three-dimensional avatar of the patient.

Canfield Launches Commercial Version of VECTRA WB360 3D Whole Body Imaging Solution

Continuing a 30 year tradition of breakthrough skin imaging innovations, Canfield Scientific completed the commercial launch of the whole body, 3D imaging system called the VECTRA® WB360, at the 75th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology in Orlando, Florida.  Designed primarily for dermatology, this state-of-the-art system simultaneously captures the entire exposed skin surface using 46 stereo vision pods and produces a single high-resolution 3D image.  After undergoing rigorous use at four (4) skin cancer centers over the last three years, the VECTRA WB360 has been proven the most advanced solution for skin cancer screenings, providing potentially life-saving information to clinicians.  Other applications of the VECTRA WB360 include reviewing skin conditions such as psoriasis, vitiligo, CTCL, neurofibromatosis and for burn management, lymphedema management, and plastic and reconstructive surgery, since accurate body surface area measurements are only possible with 3D and 360 degree imaging.
