Feasibility of Face ID TrueDepth Cameras for Functional Monitoring of Facial Movements in Craniofacial Surgery ~ Daniel Boczar, MD; Bachar F. Chaya, MD; Jorge Trilles, BS; Ricardo Rodriguez Colon, BS; Gustave K. Diep, MD; Zoe P. Berman, MD; Eduardo D. Rodriguez, MD, DDS. Hansjorg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery, NYU Langone Health, New York, NY, USA. ~ iPhone’s TrueDepth cameras can capture facial data by projecting and analyzing over 30,000 invisible dots on a person’s face. Nonetheless, this technology has been used recreationally mostly. Daniel Boczar and his co-authors developed an app that can extract quantitative data on facial movements using these cameras. Seven healthy volunteers were asked to raise their eyebrows, blink, smile, pucker their lips, and open their mouths for 10 times consecutively. They demonstrated that TrueDepth camera can measure individual’s baseline facial movements with great precision. Each volunteer had unique facial movement baseline values. Small differences (<1%) between left and right smile were detected, indicating the camera’s capacity to register subtle differences in the strength of a person’s smile on one side relative to the other. Facial expression analysis using TrueDepth cameras may be incorporated into telemedicine applications in craniofacial surgery. ~ Find out more about their study in the PSRC 2021 Abstract Supplement of @prsglobalopen
