Dr Batra’s Introduces 3D Skin Assessment to Analyse Skin Disorders

The 3D imaging diagnosis will help measure the efficacy and progress of the treatment three months before it is visible to the naked eye.

Dr Batra’s Positive Health Clinic recently introduced the first 3D skin assessment at its centres for analysis and evaluation of skin disorders. The machine, based on advanced optical technology developed at Dublin’s Trinity College, allows the skin to be viewed in 2 and 3 dimensions and enables multi-spectral analysis of epidermis and dermis.

The 3D skin assessment allows analysis of skin for its texture or signs of sun damage. It analyses skin from 3 layers deeper and gives you a heads up if there are any symptoms of a skin disease arising. Through this innovative technology, the exact measurement of skin lesions is possible in the beginning of the treatment itself. One can also monitor the effectiveness by measuring the increase/decrease in the number of lesions/abnormality. This feature gives a doctor as well as the patient the highly desired advantage of tracking the progress with exemplary precision.

Moreover, it can also help diagnose the exact concentration of melanin and hemoglobin in the skin. Another very important benefit of the technology is the predictive analysis. The 3D imaging diagnosis will help measure the efficacy and progress of the treatment three months before it is visible to the naked eye. It helps gauge response of the patient to the treatment. As the problem is diagnosed much in advance, it can also be treated immediately with faster results.

Commenting on the breakthrough technology, Dr Akshay Batra, Managing Director, Dr Batra’s Positive Health Clinic, said, “Having treated more than 1 lakh skin patients successfully through homeopathy, we constantly strive to bring the best innovative solutions for our patients. This new technology is the first of its kind in the country for 3D imaging of skin. It generates state-of-the-art graphics showing 2D and 3D images of exceptional quality that both the doctor and the patients would find very useful. Our patients can now measure their response to the treatments prescribed and the improvements in their condition.”

Dr Batra further added, “In a survey conducted by Dr Batra’s in 7 cities, it was found that 66 per cent of respondents feel that skin disorders affect their social interaction as well as their self confidence. Interestingly, it was found that 94 per cent respondents prefer a safe and secure cure for their skin condition and about 75 per cent respondents will go for the most advanced skin imaging technology to check their skin condition. Homeopathy being natural has no side effects and by introducing this novel technology in India, Dr Batra’s aims to offer its patients a safe, and effective solution to their skin disorders.”

According to estimates, about 10 per cent of Indians suffer from skin-related ailments including psoriasis (white patches), dermatitis (eczema), acne, ageing (wrinkles) and hyper-pigmentation. There is a social stigma attached to many of these skin diseases and patients often find it difficult to cope with the psychological impact of their condition.
