Canfield’s VECTRA® WB360, VISIA® provide doctors with advanced technology to assess and educate their patients on the effects of prolonged sun exposure

Cutting edge technology is making whole body screening easier than ever for both doctors and patients. Canfield's VECTRA® WB360 3D whole-body imaging system provides doctors with the technology to examine their patients efficiently for signs of sun damage and melanoma, reducing unnecessary biopsies and procedures.  Dr. Steven Q. Wang, director of Dermatologic Surgery and Dermatology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center shared, “the benefit to the patient is you don’t have to get all those benign lesions taken out.”

Canfield’s VECTRA WB360® combines advanced 3D-body mapping technology with A.I. to assist Baptist Health doctors with melanoma screenings

Canfield’s VECTRA WB360® provides doctors at Baptist Health in Miami advanced body mapping technology as they monitor patients for the earliest signs of melanoma. The advanced imaging system includes 92 cameras flashing simultaneously, with cross-polarized and polarized lighting to reveal all skin features. Naiara Braghiroli, MD, PHD, explains that with the VECTRA’s advanced body mapping technology, doctors at Baptist Health can create a 3D avatar of their patient, and “can navigate every single lesion and every part of the skin”.  Additionally, DermaGraphix® software includes DEXI, an explainable A.I. algorithm, that allows doctors using the VECTRA WB360 to view and track changes in lesions for a “second opinion” before making their ultimate diagnosis.

VECTRA® 3D Imaging Used in Experimental Study to Measure the Effects of Injectables and Facial Fillers

Canfield’s VECTRA 3D imaging system has been used to assist researchers as they conducted an experimental study focused on the effects of injectables and facial fillers. The study suggested that dermal fillers’ “volumizing” effects may also lead to subsequent “lifting effects”, as it suggests that lateral facial injections co-influence adjacent lateral facial regions. Sebastian Cotofana, MD, PhD and his team at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota measured the effects of the injections on specially prepared specimens by using VECTRA 3D imaging. The before-and-after scans from the VECTRA system showed that the dermal fillers led to significant increases in local soft tissue volume and local lifting effects on central facial injection areas, including “up to one millimeter of vertical ‘lift’ in the forehead area”.

 Canfield’s VECTRA® WB180 is a “game-changer”, per Mount Sinai Hospital

Doctors at Mount Sinai’s Waldman Melanoma Center use Canfield’s VECTRA® WB180 3D whole-body imaging system to screen patients for the earliest signs of skin cancer, as they spread awareness during Melanoma May. Canfield’s VECTRA WB180 imaging system captures 3D bodymap images with non-polarized and cross-polarized lighting for an enhanced view of lesions on the surface of the skin. The high-quality standardized images allow doctors at the Waldman Center to identify and track suspicious lesions automatically using advanced AI tools. Richard Torbek of Mount Sinai’s Icahn’s School of Medicine cites the VECTRA WB180 as a “game-changer” in skin cancer surveillance, as the system assists Mount Sinai’s doctors in melanoma prevention and detection. 

VECTRA® WB180 provides 3D whole-body imaging at Mount Sinai’s new Melanoma and Skin Cancer Center.

Canfield’s VECTRA® WB180 has been introduced at Mount Sinai Hospital as part of a larger initiative by the dermatology department to establish a new Melanoma and Skin Cancer Center. The whole-body imaging system uses AI-driven 3D-body mapping technology to track pigmented lesions on the skin’s surface. The VECTRA WB180 will assist Mount Sinai’s staff and highly trained specialists with providing patients the highest quality of care through the early detection and treatment of melanoma. In addition,  Mount Sinai’s researchers will be using the VECTRA WB180 alongside other advanced technologies to explore new skin cancer therapies and research approaches.

VECTRA® WB360 3D imaging system provides exciting opportunities for skin cancer detection, teledermatology at Rockhampton clinic

Dermatology Solutions in Rockhampton, Queensland provides accessible skin cancer treatment thanks to the VECTRA WB360® whole-body imaging system. The imaging system has been assisting Dr. John Evans and his wife Dr. Leith Banney, Director of Dermatology at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, as they screen patients for the earliest signs of melanoma. Using AI-driven 3D body mapping technology and a capture system with 92 cameras, the system can capture the entire visible surface of the patient’s skin and record lesion changes with macro quality resolution. These images can also be securely reviewed remotely by dermatologists using DICOM communication and file sharing technology. Danella Martin of the Cancer Council Center Queensland found the VECTRA WB360 system to be “exciting”, as “improvements in technology” and accessibility help dermatologists prepare their final diagnosis.

Canfield’s HairMetrix® Analysis Tool Provides Non-invasive Consultations for Patients and Practitioners

Canfield’s non-invasive hair consultation tool, HairMetrix®, provides immediate analysis results during the consultation without clipping patient’s hair, according to MedEsthetics. HairMetrix was designed for practitioners tracking progress in patients with hair loss or thinning hair. Canfield discusses how HairMetrix software uses artificial intelligence to process and analyze hair images, providing the practitioner an effective way to determine and clearly communicate treatment options and increase conversions. Practitioners also expect HairMetrix to increase compliance by providing objective evidence of results during a follow-up office visit.
