Canfield Sponsors the Mission to Raise $250,000 for Melanoma Research

Last week, ten doctors broke the Guinness World Record for the fastest time to row one million meters and raised around $245,000 for melanoma and skin cancer research at the University of Queensland Dermatology Research Centre. The endurance rowing challenge to break the record for the fastest team to row one million meters was in honor of team leader, Dr Chris Conyard’s sister-in-law, Phoebe Eales, who passed away at 31 as a result of melanoma.

ABC-7 TV in New York City Features VECTRA® WB360 in Melanoma May Segment

This story features Scott Rosato, a melanoma patient of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and his journey to monitor the 700 moles on his body. Scott and his doctors have been observing his skin carefully for 25 years, since the first of 20 melanomas was removed. Under the care of Dr. Ashfaq Marghoob, a renowned skin cancer expert, Rosato now gets his entire body scanned quickly and efficiently in Canfield’s VECTRA WB360 whole-body imaging system. The system captures patient images using 46 stereo vision pods and captures cross polarized and non-polarized images to create a precise 3D body map of the patient. The 3D body map is designed to assist clinicians and researchers with identifying changes in suspicious lesions on the surface of the skin over time and will help Dr. Marghoob with lesions requiring closer examination.

VECTRA® WB360 whole-body imaging system installed in Hopital de la Conception-AP-HM Marseille, the first installation in France

Canfield’s VECTRA WB360 was recently installed at the Hopital de la Conception-AP-HM Marseille, making it the first WB360 system to be featured in a French hospital. The whole-body imaging system will be the centerpiece of the hospital’s multi-room system for clinical dermatology, where it includes rooms for body mapping and confocal microscopy. The VECTRA WB360 captures patient images using 46 stereo vision pods with cross-polarized and non-polarized lighting, generating a single 3D image of the entire body. Incorporating Canfield’s AI-driven DermaGraphix® software, the 3D images are used for pigmented lesion and rash surveillance. Using VECTRA’S 3D imaging technology Prof. Jean-Jacques Grob and Jilliana Monnier, MD can examine individual lesions, record data, and monitor patients over time. This latest installation in Marseille is one of fifteen WB360 systems in Europe and is the fifth system so far in 2022. 

Canfield's Mirror® Mobile App for iPad and New FaceReality Module Featured in MedEsthetics Magazine

Canfield’s Mirror mobile app for iPad was featured recently in the January and February edition of MedEsthetics magazine. Both the Mirror Mobile app and it's new AI-driven module, FaceReality, was included in a list of strategies that can improve patient satisfaction from first encounters to follow-up care. Mirror Mobile app with FaceReality allows physicians to simulate outcomes based on the patient’s desire to improve their first impression, (whether it be healthier, competent, or well-rested) through surgical and non-surgical procedures.

Prof. Pablo Fernandez-Penas discusses the important role of VECTRA® WB360 in the launch of ACEMID

Prof. Pablo Fernandez-Penas of the University of Sydney was recently interviewed on 7News Australia as the University of Queensland and the Australian Cancer Research Foundation announced the official launch of the Australian Centre of Excellence in Melanoma Imaging and Diagnosis (ACEMID). Prof. Fernandez-Penas highlighted the VECTRA WB360 and explained how 15 WB360 systems will be installed as part of this initiative bringing together researchers from the University of Queensland, University of Sydney, and Monash University to study melanoma using the system’s advanced body mapping technology. Prof. Penas is hopeful that up to 15,000 Australians across the states of Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria will take part in future screenings using the VECTRA WB360, enabling researchers to collect images and develop advanced algorithms to aide melanoma detection.

VECTRA® WB360 whole-body imaging system installed in Konz, Germany to assist Dr. Gerd Kautz and Dr. Ingrid Kautz with screenings and prevention

Canfield’s VECTRA WB360 whole-body imaging system was recently installed at the clinic of Dr. Gerd Kautz and Dr. Ingrid Kautz in Konz, Germany, becoming the first system installed in a German private practice. The 3D imaging system will assist Dr. Gerd Kautz, his wife Dr. Ingrid Kautz, and other staff members as they examine patients for the earliest signs of melanoma using the system’s advanced body mapping technology. The VECTRA WB360 captures patient images using 92 SLR-cameras flashing with polarized and cross-polarized lighting for an enhanced look at skin features. After the images are captured, clinicians can view the entire skin’s surface using Canfield’s AI-driven DermaGraphix software, as they screen for signs of melanoma and monitor changes over time. Starting in early October, staff members at the practice will use the system to examine individual lesions and monitor their patients for potential skin cancer. Their practice is now the fifth VECTRA WB360 installation in Germany, including installations at the University Hospital in Erlangen, University Hospital in Munich, University Hospital in Dresden, and the Technical University of Munich.

10 News First Discusses Canfield’s VECTRA® WB360 whole-body imaging system, and ongoing melanoma research in Australia with Prof. H Peter Soyer

University of Queensland’s Prof. H Peter Soyer discusses Canfield’s VECTRA WB360 and its role in expanding Australian melanoma research with 10 News First. Researchers plan to create a database of over 100,000 clinically-accessible VECTRA WB360 patient images, enhancing melanoma screening, early diagnosis, and long-term skin surveillance. The system’s presence at multiple locations in Australia is possible as part of a AUS $10 million grant from the Australian Cancer Research Foundation, as they are using the DermaGraphix advanced body mapping technology to combat the nation’s high rate of melanoma. The VECTRA WB360 captures cross polarized and non-polarized images to create a precise 3D body map of the patient. This 3D body map provides clinicians and researchers the ability to identify changes in suspicious lesions on the surface of the skin over time.
