Item Type:Article
Additional Information:Developed for tracking, this analysis subsequently proved very useful for the design and calibration of a revolutionary new instrument that recovers 3D textures from patients' skin � including for pigmented lesions, eg melanoma. This instrument has undergone clinical trials at the Institute for Cancer Research Sutton and Frenchay Hospital, with very favourable results. A £650k DTI grant has followed directly from this work, which will enable the instrument to be further developed, in collaboration with a consultant plastic surgeon (R Warr, Frenchay Hospital, Bristol).
