data for planning and documentation can now be quickly and simply accessed.
The share of digital information in clinical documentation
is increasing in leaps and bounds. Digital archiving of simple documents
reduces space requirements and makes documents easy to find, whereas
archiving of three-dimensional data sets, such as those used in the
planning and documentation of facial operations, was hitherto still
a complicated matter. Three-dimensional data produced with the optical
sensors FaceSCAN3D/BodySCAN3D from the company 3D-Shape GmbH can now
also be integrated into PDF files. This is supported by the advanced
functionality of Adobe Acrobat Reader 8.1 for presenting three-dimensional

The transfer of documents and presentations with three-dimensional
datasets is significantly simplified as a result. In addition to the
option of image rotation, the smallest details of skin and 3D surface
structures can also be rendered visible with the aid of the zoom function.
Advantages of integration in a PDF document arise, for instance, with
the possibility of exchanging data in a fast and uncomplicated way when
consulting with medical colleagues at remote locations via the Internet.
Image embedding is another useful technique in clinical archiving since
the electronic documentation can be implemented in a standardized and
universally readable format.
