Dennis J. Hurwitz, M.D. Announces the Installation of the First Portrait 3D - Breast for Simulation of Breast Augmentation Surgery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

By on June 15, 2009

Dennis J. Hurwitz, M.D., Clinical Professor of Plastic Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh, announces the installation fo the first Portrait 3D-Breast for simulation of Breast Augmentation surgery in Pennsylvania. This state fo the art imager can accurately simulate the results fo Breast Augmentation surgery for his patients. At the Pittsburgh Center in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh, the guess work is taken out of estimating the size and shape of breasts after implant augmentation. The first patients to experience this aid in consultation were thrilled to preview their results of surgery, which enabled them to select their implant size, style and position. See a demonstration on his home page at www.pittsburghplasticsurgery.com. Axis Three, the leader and pioneer of surgical simulation tools for the cosmetic surgery industry, today announced the general availability of the Portrait 3D - Breast, the world's first simulation software based on physics-driven tissue typing. This is the fifth generation of the Portrait 3D product and a major breakthrough in the surgical simulation and imaging industries. "Portrait 3D, with its new physics-based algorithm, is a huge advance in breast imaging," said Dr. William Adams, Jr. "The program provides the surgeon with a comprehensive consultation tool that allows the patient to better understand many aspects of breast surgery. In addition, for the first time in the history of breast augmentation, patients have something with a scientific basis to provide a three dimensional glimpse of what they actually may look like post-operatively." Axis Three's revolutionary Tissue Behavior Simulation (TBS) technology accurately combines breast and tissue-type characterizations with specific implants from implant manufacturers catalogues. These unique algorithms will now allow surgeons to use the patient's specific body attributes, such as their parenchyma, glandular contribution and skin elasticity, when simulating various procedures.
