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 post-operative outcomes.
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 required.
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. 3D Project Data Request form (PDF 15 KB).
