3D Printing Used To Model Baby’s Skull

Drs. Michael Egnor and Elliot Duboys recently used a 3D printed model of a baby’s skull in an intricate surgery to correct anterior plagiocephaly. The infant, Gabriel Dela Cruz, was born with a normal skull but shortly after birth the bony plates one side of this skull began to fuse prematurely, causing a badly misshapen head. Using CT scans, Medical Modeling, Inc. used 3D printing to create before and after skull models that the surgeons used as templates during surgery.
