Digital photographs have become an integral part in plastic and reconstructive surgery. They are significant in clinical research and outcome evaluation. There is a need for effective and secure methods to store, search, and retrieve those photographs. We developed a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act compliant searchable database to archive and index clinical information for clinical and research purposes.

Plastic and Reconstructive surgery is able to treat patients from head to toe, whereby it can preserve, reform or reconstruct anatomically functional or aesthetic unions. This kind of expertise is app...
Social media have transformed plastic surgery, intersecting patient education, provider marketing, and academic interactions across the globe. Despite this, social media are seldom used in research. T...
Simulation is progressively being integrated into surgical training, yet its utility in plastic surgery has not been well described. We present a prospective, randomized, blinded trial comparing digit...
Despite its increasing acceptance as an autonomous specialty the field of plastic surgery remains underrepresented in terms of independent departments with a dedicated research infrastructure. The obj...
The overall objective of this study is to evaluate whether polarized or green filtered digital imaging can assist clinicians to screen for premalignant lesions in the cervix. The specific...
The purpose of this study is to (1) collect trained observer scores and digital images of skin irritated by generic and RLD Lidocaine 5% delivered via TDS, and (2) assess performance of an...
The primary objective of this study is to acquire digital mammography images produced by the Xpress Digital Mammography System in order to develop Computer Aided Detection software and sys...
This is a multicenter prospective observational clinical investigation with a medical device. The purpose of this study is to develop and validate of a new type of digital dermatoscope wit...
The overall objective of this study is to identify potential improvements for a noninvasive method of diagnosing dysplasia and neoplasia in the cervix using Multi-spectral Digital Colposco...
The branch of surgery concerned with restoration, reconstruction, or improvement of defective, damaged, or missing structures.
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
A rapid, low-dose, digital imaging system using a small intraoral sensor instead of radiographic film, an intensifying screen, and a charge-coupled device. It presents the possibility of reduced patient exposure and minimal distortion, although resolution and latitude are inferior to standard dental radiography. A receiver is placed in the mouth, routing signals to a computer which images the signals on a screen or in print. It includes digitizing from x-ray film or any other detector.

Plastic surgery of the eyelid. (Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
