Breast imaging takes a 3D image of a patient’s body, which can then be used to compare the aesthetics of saline or gel implants. Additionally, this technology is capable of showing more than one procedure at a time (such as breast augmentation and a tummy tuck). This is important because many patients are interested in multiple complementary procedures, and the Vectra Imaging System allows patients to see complete, final results of the procedures they seek in a single image. Automated measurements ensure accuracy, and in some situations, the only way to achieve this level of accuracy is with 3D imaging.
The technology offers a variety of features that help patients gauge their goals and choose the appropriate procedures.
- The gray mode is used to highlight contours and can be helpful with corrective procedures.
- The proprietary RBX Technology differentiates between red and brown pigmentation to help identify skin conditions needing treatment.
- The markerless tracking feature allows for a dynamic analysis of the skin surface, while the “volume difference” feature visualizes contour degree differences.
- Circumferential measurements are highly accurate when taking the 360-degree image, which is critical when planning body procedures like a liposuction, tummy tuck, and breast procedure.
