3D printed baby skull, used to treat a 6-month-old child of Plagiocephaly, or “flat head syndrome” as it is also known. Doctor’s Michael Egnor and Elliot Duboys of Stony Brook University prepared for the surgery by creating 3D images of the child’s skull, as it should appear after the surgery. Thus, he and his team of surgeons were able to use both virtual models and a 3D printed skull as guides for the procedure. Thus, surgical time was drastically reduced, and the success chance of the operation increased beyond what it would have otherwise been.

Haha I found some batteries. This is all the stuff that was in the tubs and buckets. I am very tired. Actually there are two buck skulls and three antler caps off to the side of this picture, too. You can see the waterbuck on the right. It’s looking better but it’s still not done.
