    Australian ABC 24 TV Saturday

    if anyone has the catch up link and could pst it that would be great - or further info - they do not seem to have a link up that a few of us have searched for.


    Perth Face Space Project

    Facial imaging testing - - a new research initiative

    Dr Mark Walters, cranio-maxo-facial specialist and Dr Gareth ?Beynam, Clinical Geneticist
    Western Australia - so Perth Uni or Univ of WA? are assembling a reference bank of young faces.

    They photograph in 3-D the faces and heads of kids from 1 month through to 25 years old
    study healthy youth for later illnesses -( too ) - a longitudinal study.

    digital photography with multiple lenses creates a virtual 3-D image

    They are looking for facial signatures or patterns of variation clues to predict the onset of rare diseases.

    The program filters out normal variance noise. It is quick and efficient and gives reliable information.

    Australia is hoping to develop and export this technology. It is also ennvisged tht the technology could be installed in GP s rooms for fast and inexpensive scanning for genetic conditions.



    Interesting,
    cheers,
