Abstract: The BCCT.core (Breast Cancer Conservative Treatment. cosmetic results) is a software tool created for the objective evaluation of the aesthetic result of Breast Cancer Conservative Treatment (BCCT). It makes use of a face-only photographic view of each patient and might thus have been considered insufficient for an accurate evaluation of the aesthetic result. So far, there are not many studies reporting the value of side-views in the objective evaluation of the aesthetic result after BCCT. Therefore the purpose of this work was to compare the input value of a set of asymmetry measures captured on patients photographic side-views with the aesthetic evaluation obtained by the software (face-view only) and a consensus expert panel classification.
