Abstract

Life-sized three dimensional (3-D) models of the human skull were produced in detail, based on data from computed tomography (CT) scans, and crafted in laser-curable resin, using a digitally-controlled laser scanner. These models allowed preoperative assessment and actual simulation surgery using the appropriate instrumentation. The advantages of this approach and examples of applications are also discussed. This approach is reported in one case of craniofacial deformity.
