Medical documents in PDF format

Three-dimensional 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 images.

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.
