Software to give 3d image of looks post-plastic surgery

Washington, Feb 3 (IANS) A new software, based on real clinical data, will give patients a more accurate 3D before-and-after picture, before the scalpel comes down in a cosmetic surgery.

Alex Bronstein of Tel Aviv University's department of electrical engineering and his partners have built a tool that can generate an anatomically accurate after-surgery image.

With the help of experienced plastic surgeons, the tool can work like an engine to retrieve geometric objects in the same manner Google retrieves web pages, according to a Tel Aviv statement.

It helps patients avoid unexpected results in the plastic surgeon's office, and can also help a surgeon determine the most favourable outcome for the patient.

'Our program is more like a virtual mirror. It gives surgeons and their patients a way to see a 3D before-and-after image as though the patient has really undergone the operation,' says Bronstein.
