White Light Scanning to Aid Body Contouring: A Pilot Project

2010-07-15 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

A white light scanner can more accurately measure body contouring subjects than standard anthropomorphic methods.

Description

A 3-D digital body camera that employs non-intrusive white light phase profilometry and 24 coordinated charge-coupled cameras scans and produces a "point cloud" image of the subject. The result of the two-minute scan process is an accurate three-dimensional body model of the subject, consisting of over 1.2 million surface points. The point cloud is compressed to provide programmable measurement extraction profiles (MEP's) that automatically extracts linear and circumferential measurements. Subjects are scanned and anthropometrically measured pre-operatively, and at 3, 6 and 9 months post-op.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A collection of heterogenous conditions resulting from defective LIPID METABOLISM and characterized by ADIPOSE TISSUE atrophy. Often there is redistribution of body fat resulting in peripheral fat wasting and central adiposity. They include generalized, localized, congenital, and acquired lipodystrophy.

A type of diabetes mellitus that is characterized by severe INSULIN RESISTANCE and LIPODYSTROPHY. The latter may be generalized, partial, acquired, or congenital (LIPODYSTROPHY, CONGENITAL GENERALIZED).

Congenital disorders, usually autosomal recessive, characterized by severe generalized lack of ADIPOSE TISSUE, extreme INSULIN RESISTANCE, and HYPERTRIGLYCERIDEMIA.

Defective metabolism leading to fat maldistribution in patients infected with HIV. The etiology appears to be multifactorial and probably involves some combination of infection-induced alterations in metabolism, direct effects of antiretroviral therapy, and patient-related factors.

Inherited conditions characterized by the partial loss of ADIPOSE TISSUE, either confined to the extremities with normal or increased fat deposits on the face, neck and trunk (type 1), or confined to the loss of SUBCUTANEOUS FAT from the limbs and trunk (type 2).
