Comparison between breast volume measurement using 3D surface imaging and classical techniques. 
Abstract:
Quantification of the complex breast region can be helpful in breast surgery, which is shaped by subjective influences. However, there is no generally recognized method for breast volume calculation. Three-dimensional (3D) body surface imaging represents a new alternative for breast volume computation.
