eCPD - Monitoring human burn wounds using Spatial Technologies
Date & Time

This is a recording of a live webinar held on 29 June 2020.
Speaker: Dr Petra Helmholz, Curtin University
Photogrammetric Image Processing and Analysis allows the geometric as well as semantic extraction of information based on images. While single images can only be used to extract semantic information, stereo-image pairs or a number of images taken of the same object can be used to extract 3D information in the form of point clouds (implicit) or direct measurements (explicit). This 3D information allows the assessment of wounds and measurements such as the surface area and potentially depth.
This audit focused on the aspect of the integration of 3D imagery technology and subsequent automatic analysis to provide a more accurate and objective measurement of burn assessment. The research questions have been framed to investigate whether Photogrammetry and photogrammetric image analysis have the potential to determine the surface area of a burn wound in 3D (geometric analysis) AND to provide an objective measurement to analyse the depth of injury based on spectral appearance.
This event is worth one SSSI CPD point.
