The Batten Foundation 3D Imaging Centre is a state-of-the-art
service equipped to capture three dimensional images - an
instantaneous technique where an exact digital 3D representation of
the patient is created.
The provision of a 3D image of the patient makes it possible for
health professionals to analyse and calculate measurements,
assisting with pre-operative diagnosis, planning treatments and
The service at the outset has been established for the plastic
and maxillofacial unit to monitor and assess craniofacial surgical
treatments. The flexibility of the system allows the service to
adapt to the needs of other departments where detailed geometric,
volumetric, angular and anthropometric comparisons are
The service is constantly evolving and finding new applications
for this technology. The 3D Imaging Centre welcomes enquiries
however we must have a project plan with ethics approval before we
can begin any work.
