dc.description.abstract <p>In this research, the researchers aimed to isolate the 3D body scanning process as a separate variable from viewing the avatar so that the implications of the 3D body scanning on body image and self-objectification may be better understood. The sample of 105 women completed a pretest, body scan, and post-test. The research team found that the process of being body scanned did not significantly change the participants' state self-objectification scores. Demographic differences such as age, race, education, and socioeconomic status did not influence this finding. This finding is important, given that recent studies report that 3D body scanning can have detrimental effects on participants' body satisfaction. This information may be useful for researchers who are concerned that the process of being 3D body scanned may have negative impacts on a participant's state self-objectification.</p>
