Symmetry Scan technology lets retailers scan customers, store information, and order custom breast forms from almost anywhere.
What is Symmetry Scan?
Symmetry Scan, an innovation of ContourMed, offers a new technology that has replaced CAD/CAM scanning equipment – which is typically still used by retailers for fitting prosthetic breast forms. The laser scanning system involves a sophisticated iPad software application that allows for scanning of the chest wall and serves as a digital database for patient imaging data. When a retailer partners with ContourMed, they are allowing mastectomy patients access to the best breast forms on the market today.
Symmetry Scan equips clinicians, post-mastectomy retailers, and mastectomy breast form fitters throughout the country with the technical capabilities to accurately, simply, and economically perform precise imaging of the unique contours of a woman’s surgical site to provide industry leading custom breast forms.
How We Equip Retailers
The portability of this state-of-the-art imaging technology allows providers to offer comprehensive fitting and material selection. A provider’s site is equipped by with the following:
- New iPad
- Symmetry Scan iPad app
- 3D scanner attachment
- Light-weight travel case
The Symmetry Scan technology was developed with ease of use in mind. Each authorized retailer or clinic is provided step-by-step instructions for the scan capture process. The entire process of imaging and creating specifications typically takes under 20 minutes.
After the Scan
When a provider completes the scan and places an order for breast forms through the Symmetry Scan software, ContourMed’s professional patient support team receives a notification. Simultaneously, the provider is informed that the scan has been received by the ContourMed team. The provider is updated on the status of the order until it is completed, so they can track progress of the order and communicate with the patient along the way.
Additionally, the provider can review all orders for their patients at any time and directly communicate with ContourMed to make order adjustments by sending messages through the Symmetry Scan platform. Symmetry Scan’s digital user interface is HIPPA compliant, with a secure database back-up system.
