The ability to communicate visually, without using medical terminology, is a powerful patient education tool. When I show them the simulated results of their procedures, it gives them the confidence that we have a plan that will meet their personal goals.
Dr. Epstein has been a Mirror user since 1998 and has a dermatology clinical research center (DermResearchCenter of New York) on site directed by Dr. Elyse Rafal. His practice has a long history of experience with Canfield Clinical Systems, both with their software and their custom-designed imaging systems.
He did a thorough comparison of the VECTRA 3D and competitive systems and found the images to be more lifelike and the color rendition superior. The analysis software coupled with the Sculptor software give much more flexibility than other systems, and he was amazed to see how close the simulated images look to what he would predict the surgical result to be.
