Abstract

In this paper, we present a medicine decision support system based on medical image processing, virtual reality and rapid prototyping techniques, providing surgeons a computer-aided diagnosis tool that allows evaluation of volumetric changes in lipodystrophy. It also provides a decision support system for surgical planning and intraoperative guidelines to perform the intervention.

This system began to be developed in our hospital in 2005 under a research, development and innovation project called VirSSPA. The system is composed by a surface scanner, VirSSPA software and physical biomodels generated by rapid prototyping in our installations. VirSSPA allows surgeons to generate and modify a virtual model of the patient and control any change in the facial contours.

As a result we have improved the quality of care using innovative techniques such as those described above.
