Large Skin Analysis Database Launches

Canfield Imaging Systems announced plans to launch the world's largest skin imaging database at the American Academy of Dermatology's (AAD) Summer Academy Meeting. The announcement was made by Douglas Canfield, president and CEO of Canfield Scientific Inc.

Canfield Imaging Systems, a developer of clinical imaging software and photographic systems, plans to unveil the database of 1,000,000 images in February 2008, at the AAD's 66th Annual Meeting. The company believes the database can lead to a greater understanding of skin aging across all skin types.

The database, which is used to compare skin conditions of individuals to the general populace, was started in the late '90s. It forms the basis of a statistical model which provides skin care professionals the expected range for important complexion features for skin type and age.
