Application of 3D Whole Body Scanning in Research on Human Body Surface Area




Human body surface area (BSA) is one of the major parameters used in several medical fields. Its heterogeneity caused by individual human characteristics sustains a many-decades-long research on the matter. Today's technology allows to create exact body models in mere seconds. However, an extensive research that includes scanning people with major disfigurements or people suffering from diseases, which often prevent their mobility, requires a specific approach. Here, we present the entire scanning procedure and graphical processing methods used in investigation of changes in BSA in function of different anthropometric parameters. The Artec 3D Eva hand-held scanner has been used as the measurement device. We performed a total of five scans for every subject-four for each limb and one for the main body part. After a series of processing methods, the resulting body model can be further used as an accurate basis for BSA formulae investigation.
