Objectives: This study is concerned with the geometrical part of the vision, or more specifically with the 3D aspects. The ability of humans to perceive the 3D world from the two-dimensional (2D) projections on the retinae is fascinating. How some of the basic sub-problems of geometric vision can be solved, but the overall aim was to reconstruct a scene from several images. So how do we combine the basic solvers to handle multiple images?
Methods: We studied the multiple views and stereo-3D imaging technology to burn injury of stereo 3D vision and 3D studied visual issues related to it, including visual discomfort, binocular disparities, vengeance-accommodation mismatch, and visual fatigue. We also studied the burn care of medical applications of stereo-3D imaging techniques, and application trends as pertain to imaging medical devices. A new camera having many correspondences among the estimated 3D points is added to the model by computing its camera pose. To stabilize the estimation bundle adjustment is normally performed several times, sometimes for every new camera that is added. The Face & Future SID device is a mobile 3D wound measurement device attached to an App It has a friendly user interface and a LED assisted multiple views 3D camera that can assess both wound area and volume. In this study, we compare three modalities in wound area measurements: The Face & Future SID device, the device, and standard hand measurements.
Results: The multiple views 3D face imaging technology, we are providing the convenience and widespread use for 3 main groups in the catastrophe inclusive of patients, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), and ambulance technicians and doctors. For patients who could be civilians or our soldiers who participate in the rescue mission, the 3D face imaging device could lead to developing new dressing for the wound on the face. The new dressing could fully cover the wound and prevent the production of dead space in order to fix the structure of the wound and provide good hygiene. For the EMTs, in the scene of the catastrophe, the 3D face imaging device provides them a good way to take care of the wound and may transfer the information to the doctors in the hospital. For example, the depth of the wound is useful information for a plastic surgery doctor to guide the EMTs to perform different types of wound dressing.
Conclusions: The application of multiple views 3D stereo-imaging technology to the medical and burn care field will help improve surgically and burn care accuracy, reduce operation times, and enhance patient safety. Therefore, this device has been applied to a variety of fields such as burn care and the plastic surgical or cosmetic medical fields. Particularly, in the medical and burn care field, various medical imaging devices have adopted the stereo-imaging technique, such as the stereo 3D camera and multiple views 3D camera, and have been developed and utilized clinically to improve surgical and burn care accuracy and patient safety.
