Prof. Pablo Fernandez-Penas of Westmead Hospital Discusses VECTRA® WB360’s Revolutionary Melanoma Screening Technology with 9 News Australia

9 News Australia discusses Canfield’s revolutionary VECTRA WB360 technology with DermaGraphix® software and its role in skin screening at Westmead Hospital. DermaGraphix® enhances screenings, assists with early diagnoses, and provides long-term skin surveillance of the whole body in a singular 3D avatar of the patient. Patient, Gayle Johnston, had her entire body scanned effectively and efficiently in the whole-body imaging system, leading to the discovery of a suspicious mole on her forearm.

The segment also features an interview with Prof. Pablo Fernandez-Penas, head of dermatology at Westmead Hospital, where he expresses amazement that the system assists clinicians and researchers so effectively with identifying changes in suspicious lesions on the surface of the skin over time. The WB360 whole-body imaging system, with 46 stereo-vision pods, can take pictures with cross-polarized and non-polarized lighting, generating a single 3D image of the entire body. University of Queensland, University of Sydney, and Monash University are scheduled to install 15 VECTRA WB360 systems to further their research to obtain this goal for Australians.
