This CPD session will delve into the benefits of 3D photography and how it can aid treatment planning.

A 3D photograph (also called “surface scan”) provides a virtual rendering of, for example, the face and can be used to assess facial changes, such as asymmetry. It can also be used in conjunction with other examinations to restore or modify features for aesthetic or functional purposes.

The 3D photograph is acquired using a sophisticated set-up of cameras and large white flashes. This is a completely radiation-free procedure. Though this technology is most commonly used to image faces, it can be applied to any other external soft tissue.
