Planimetry Defined

Planimetry is the science of measuring plane surfaces; horizontal measurements.  PictZar® CDM / Pro Software provides a unique method of calibrating digital images without having to know the distance between the camera lens and the subject.


PictZar® CDM & Pro provides the following measurements:  Length (vertical measurement), Width (horizontal measurement), Area (surface area), Circumference, Depth (added by user), Est. Volume (calculated) Four color areas, and associate various depths with each color, PUSH Tool conversion and graphs Braden Scale (Pro only).   Colors may be used to designate tissue type and therefore track wound changes by tissue type.

  Measurement Data

The measurement data may be saved in a number of ways.  Initially, the data is entered directly on the image which is then saved to your hard drive.  The images (in the form of a jpg) may be imported to most electronic medical systems.  A measured image may be printed using your regular printer along with the data for insurance purposes or to be placed in a medical record.  The data along with images may also be exported to Microsoft Word, PDF reports (Pro only) and / or Microsoft Excel (CDM only), or Access database file (Pro only) and / or to a PictZar Data file or ASCII file along with the measured image for compiling data on a wound or lesion.  

Other information may include:  Type of wound, location, percent change in area, percentage of tissue by type, area by tissue type, aging of wound and other wound information.
