Validation of the Vectra XT Imaging System for Volume Analysis of the Breast


About this study

The objective of the present study is to prospectively enroll Mayo Clinic breast reconstruction patients with tissue expanders in place.  We will then use the Vectra XT Imaging System to capture images of patients both pre- and post- tissue expansion to determine if the Vectra system accurately captures volume changes when a known volume of fluid is injected into a tissue expander.  This will enable us to determine if the Vectra XT Imaging System can be used for other applications of volume analysis.
