Multispectral 3D Surface Scanning System RoScan and its Application in Inflammation Monitoring and Quantification

Adam Chromy

Abstract

This paper presents experimental multispectral 3D surface scanning system RoScan, which is capable of capturing 3D models of a surface, containing a spatial representation of the object, colour of each point of the surface, its temperature and roughness. Such models are provided with accuracy up to 0:12 mm and thermal resolution of 0:05C, what makes it suitable for 3D thermal body scanning in medicine. Basic principles, parameters, and functional capabilities are discussed, and developed tools for data analysis are presented. The RoScan system is suitable for early detection of inflamed regions and its objective quantification. It can be also used for evaluation of treatment suitability or for monitoring during a recovery process. To show this, the case study monitoring of inflammation related to eczema caused by an allergic reaction is presented. The inflammation development is studied using RoScan during eczema growth and after the application of two different external dermatologics – Protopic R 0.1% topical ointment and ointment from shea butter and coconut oil. On this particular subject, measured characteristics demonstrated a stronger effect of Protopic R 0.1% on eczema healing, as the evolution of inflammation in the area treated with this dermatologics started to recover earlier and culminated on the lower value of temperature gradient then the second ointment.
