Abstract

The implementation of a multimedial workstation for managing data and digital images concerning follow up of patients who underwent plastics is here presented. Such system is made up of a personal computer with high resolution graphics, a board for acquiring and elaborating digital images, a matrix TV camera or, as an alternative, a digital photographic aparatus and a graduated background for photographic shots. The programme based on the graphic workstation completes a software purposely realized form image processing together with a RDBMS (Relational Data Base Management System). This allows the study of patient's images, calculation of some significant geometrical parameters and analysis of pre- and postoperative results, but also comparison of similar cases stored in RDBMS. The prototype has been built to give plastic surgeons a versatile and complete instrument, for the Windows operating system, for examining rhinoplasty results. Nevertheless, this system can be adapted to any kind of pre- and postoperative geometrical test in plastics.
