Canfield’s VECTRA® WB360 featured on Seven Network’s Sunrise morning show considered a “major breakthrough” in melanoma surveillance

Australia’s Seven Network Sunrise morning show featured the VECTRA WB360® whole-body 3D imaging system as a “technological breakthrough” for melanoma surveillance. Hosts David Koch and Natalie Barr discuss the whole-body imaging system with Associate Prof. Victoria Mar of Monash University in Melbourne, where she explains how the system’s advanced body mapping technology assists doctors in making more accurate melanoma diagnoses. Prof. Mar also mentions the infrastructure grant from the Australian Cancer Research Foundation, where 15 VECTRA WB360 systems will be placed in clinics across Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria. The systems set up in these states will be part of a larger telehealth network, enabling patients in remote areas to take part in a very thorough risk assessment study. Prof. Mar explains how the approach using the VECTRA WB360 will help researchers monitor melanoma on a long-term basis and will place an emphasis on reaching remote patients so they can receive the highest level of care.
