This model depicts the anatomy of a skull with the metopic variation of craniosynostosis. This is a condition where some of the sutures on a skull have fused, resulting abnormal development of the skull. This rare bit of pathology was segmented by CT imagery, and is an excellent anatomical reference. Since it is printed in a compliant material it can also be used to test medical devices and practice surgical techniques inside of atypical anatomy.
This model is 3D printed on top of the line polyjet 3D printers. Due to this the material is recreated with the highest dimensional accuracy.
