A Picture is Worth More Than 1000 Words: How Advanced Imaging Is Improving Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Medicine w/ Doug Canfield
Manage episode 357938888 series 3405398
In aesthetic medicine, photography is central to the consultation, treatment planning, execution of the treatment, and the assessment of the results. Photography expert Doug Canfield, founder of Canfield Scientific, returns to the podcast to talk with Dr. Bass about the latest advances in clinical photography including how artificial intelligence is aiding imaging and diagnosis.
Without photographic documentation, plastic surgeons aren't able to prove their abilities to prospective patients, current patients aren't able to have confidence in the procedure they had, and prospective patients aren't able to use past patient results as examples of their goals.
Real advancements in imaging software allow practices to take consistent, high quality before and after pictures and today, there are both 2D and 3D simulations which realistically show patients what is possible and appropriate.
When you use these technologies to show patients how their appearance can change with various interventions, plastic surgeons and patients can both walk into surgery with the exact same mental picture of the end result.
