3D medical imaging pioneer Canfield Scientific will team up with international medical charity Operation Smile this summer to support their efforts in providing free surgical care for children suffering from cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. Canfield has agreed to provide 3D clinical imaging training for Operation Smile personnel as they establish a dedicated center in Nicaragua.
3D photography has become indispensable for the documentation and analysis of craniofacial surgical procedures. Canfield’s VECTRA H1 camera provides physicians with a comprehensive 3D view to accurately assess patient anatomy and quantify surgical results with just one capture. Lightweight and portable, the hand-held H1 allows volunteer doctors and medical staff essential mobility for traveling between remote locations.
“We are excited to work with Operation Smile in their mission to improve the quality of healthcare to children all over the world,” said President Doug Canfield. “Sharing this advanced technology is both a privilege and a responsibility.” Maria Ansley, a photographer and regular VECTRA 3D user at Southern Illinois University’s Institute for Plastic Surgery, has traveled extensively to document the outcomes of these surgeries. “VECTRA H1 offers a transformative technology for our medical teams. I believe it will change the way we practice medical photography in the field.”
