3-D facial scans to speed diagnoses for rare genetic diseases
from Technology Networks
Most children with rare genetic diseases spend years undergoing medical tests and waiting for a diagnosis — a long, exhausting process that takes its toll on children and their families. Almost half of these children never get a definitive diagnosis. Now an international team led by scientists and clinicians from the University of Colorado, University of Calgary, and University of California, San Francisco has developed a prototype tool based on three-dimensional facial imaging that could shorten that diagnostic odyssey by making it easier for clinicians to diagnose genetic syndromes.
