Proportionally correct 3D models of infants, children and adolescents for precise burn size measurement

The estimation of a pediatric patient’s total burned surface area (TBSA) is challenging due to varying size and body proportions during growth. To address these anthropometric differences, the rule of nines and Lund Browder charts have been extended by three to five age groups. These standard methods however are subject to high inter-rater variance and typically lead to substantial overestimation of the affected area.To enable precise three dimensional (3D) body surface area measurements, we generated 12 proportionally correct 3D models based on anthropometric measurements collected from 2529 patients aged 0-17 years. These models were integrated into BurnCase 3D for measuring the TBSA of pediatric patients.
