BACKGROUND: The most important element during breast reconstruction preoperative planning is determining the new position and shape of the breast. A youthful breast with no signs of ptosis may not necessarily be the ideal breast for women of all ages. However, indicators have not been established on how breasts should be positioned depending on age. We investigated and reported on the proper positioning of the breasts based on age during breast reconstruction using mean age-based data from three-dimensional (3D) modeling...

OBJECTIVES: Conventional 2-stage expander-implant breast reconstruction is frequently performed. However, direct to implant reconstruction should be considered if indicated and if circumstances allow. One difficulty in breast reconstruction postmastectomy is selection of the appropriate implant size prior to surgery. The ability to estimate implant volume and mastectomy-specimen volume from the preoperative breast volume using a 3-dimensional (3D) scanner would greatly facilitate reconstruction...

OBJECTIVES: The study hypothesis is to assess correlation of breast specimen weight versus volume. DESIGN: Consecutive patients undergoing breast surgery at a single tertiary referral centre during a 6-month period were included. Specimen weight was measured in grams. Direct volume measurements were performed using water displacement. Data including side of the breast, age and menstrual status of the patient were noted. SETTING: Knowledge of breast volume provides an objective guide in facilitating the achievements of balance in reconstructive operations...

BACKGROUND: Accurate breast volume assessment is a prerequisite to preoperative planning, as well as intraoperative decision making in breast reconstruction surgery. The use of three-dimensional surface imaging (3D scanning) to assess breast volume has many advantages. However, before employing 3D scanning in the field, the tool's validity should be demonstrated. The purpose of this study was to confirm the validity of 3D-scanning technology for evaluating breast volume. METHODS: We reviewed the charts of 25 patients who underwent breast reconstruction surgery immediately after total mastectomy...

BACKGROUND: Volume of the breast can be objectively measured by three-dimensional (3D) photographs. This study describes the analysis of three different positions of the patient in image acquisition, in order to find the best pose for reproducible 3D photographs of the breasts. METHOD: Twenty-four patients were included between February and September 2014 in a consecutive way. Data were collected prospectively. 3D photographs were acquired using a stereophotogrammetry system...

The potential to extrapolate accurate data from 3-dimensional (3D) images of the breast is enormous and will greatly improve our ability to qualitatively determine differences in shape, size, and contour. The validity of these calculated measurements is important and needs to be determined before any meaningful data can be evaluated. PART I: Premastectomy 3D images (3dMD patient) were obtained on 19 breasts (14 patients). The volume of the mastectomy specimen was determined intraoperatively using water displacement...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare the accuracy and reproducibility of different methods for calculating breast volume when using measurements made on mammograms. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The volumes of 32 breasts were determined by pathologic evaluation of mastectomy specimens. Two radiologists independently measured breast height and width on the preoperative craniocaudal mammograms and measured height, width, and width at half-height on mediolateral oblique mammograms...

AIM: The aim of this study was to investigate the criteria for determining the cancer risk of the breast asymmetry by comparing breast volume asymmetry levels between healthy women and women with cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two hundred and one women with breast cancer (group 1) were compared with 446 healthy women (group 2) who had no pathologic findings in breast sonography and mammograpy repeated with one-year interval. Data were evaluated retrospectively. Each breast volume was measured twice by Grossman-Roudner Discs...

Assessment of breast volume is an important tool for preoperative planning in various breast surgeries and other applications, such as bra development. Accurate assessment can improve the consistency and quality of surgery outcomes. This study outlines a non-invasive method to measure breast volume using a whole body 3D laser surface anatomy scanner, the Cyberware WBX. It expands on a previous publication where this method was validated against patients undergoing mastectomy. It specifically outlines and expands the computer-aided anthropometric (CAA) method for extracting breast volumes in a non-invasive way from patients enrolled in a breast reduction study at Flinders Medical Centre, South Australia...

Breast volume is a key metric in breast surgery and there are a number of different methods which measure it. However, a lack of knowledge regarding a method's accuracy and comparability has made it difficult to establish a clinical standard. We have performed a systematic review of the literature to examine the various techniques for measurement of breast volume and to assess their accuracy and usefulness in clinical practice. Each of the fifteen studies we identified had more than ten live participants and assessed volume measurement accuracy using a gold-standard based on the volume, or mass, of a mastectomy specimen...

Breast reconstruction has established psychosocial benefit compared to mastectomy alone. Evaluation of determinants of breast reconstruction outcome has previously been limited by lack of high quality, condition-specific, patient-reported outcomes measures. The BREAST-Q is such a measure and is well suited to comparison against objective measurements of reconstructed breasts such as volume and volume symmetry. A cohort of patients who had undergone breast reconstruction over a 14 year period underwent assessment of their breast reconstructions using a 3D laser scanning technique and at the same time completed the BREAST-Q patient reported outcomes measure...

BACKGROUND: There are many methods of measuring the breast and their clinical applications are well described in the literature. However, there has been no attempt to compare these various methods to allow the user to have a broad overview of the subject. The authors have attempted to summarise all the available methods to measure the breast in this article to provide a useful reference for all. METHODS: A comprehensive literature search of PubMed was performed, and the resulting articles were screened and reviewed...

Breast reconstruction plays an integral role in the holistic management of breast cancer, with assessment of breast volume, shape, and projection vital in planning breast reconstruction surgery. Current practice includes two-dimensional (2D) photography and visual estimation in selecting ideal volume and shape of breast implants or soft-tissue flaps. Other objective quantitative means of calculating breast volume have been reported, such as direct anthropomorphic measurements or three-dimensional (3D) photography, but none have proven reliably accurate...

INTRODUCTION: The indication for breast reduction in a public welfare or an insurance paid setting depends on the severity of the subjective symptoms and the clinical evaluation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the use of breast volume as an objective criterion to establish the indication for breast reduction surgery, thus establishing a standard decision basis that can be shared by surgeons and departments to secure patients fair and equal treatment opportunities. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 427 patients who were referred to three Danish public hospitals with breast hypertrophy in the period from January 2007 to March 2011 were included prospectively in the study...

Precise and objective calculation of breast volume is helpful to evaluate the aesthetic result of breast surgery, but traditional methods are unsatisfactory. Three-dimensional (3D) scanning of the body surface allows reproducible and objective assessment of the complex breast region but requires further investigation before clinical application. The main goal of this study was to investigate the precision and accuracy of breast volume measurement using 3D body scanning. Five independent observers standardized the 3D scanning method using 2 dummy models (n = 200) and examined its applicability with 6 test subjects and 10 clinical patients (n = 2220)...

BACKGROUND: Precise determination of breast volume facilitates reconstructive procedures and helps in the planning of tissue removal for breast reduction surgery. Various methods currently used to measure breast size are limited by technical drawbacks and unreliable volume determinations. The purpose of this study was to develop a formula to predict breast volume based on straightforward anthropomorphic measurements. METHODS: One hundred one women participated in this study...
