Supplemental Digital Content is available in the text Abstract Cranial bone thickness and frontal sinus size are important parameters to be known before cranial procedures. Deep-learning systems have become popular for making bulk analyses to diagnose diseases/disorders and plan treatment algorithms in diverse fields of medicine. Deep-learning systems would be valuable assets also for cranial procedures. Deep-learning systems need normative values and variances of the population on which they… 
Average thickness of the bones of the human neurocranium: development of reference measurements to assist with blunt force trauma interpretations
TLDR
Given the assorted influence of the biological variables, reference measurement ranges for average thickness incorporated these variables allow forensic practitioners to identify when a neurocranial bone is of normal, or abnormal, thickness.
Skull Thickness Calculation Using Thermal Analysis and Finite Elements
In this study, the skull bone thicknesses of 150 patients ranging in age from 0 to 72 years were calculated using a novel approach (thermal analysis), and thickness changes were analyzed. Unlike
Surgery Training System Supported by Organic Materials
The aim of the study was the qualitative assessment of new materials based on a polycarbonate matrix in terms of its use in 3D printing and its processing and geometric modification (cutting).
Variation of the human skull bone thickness with the age, gender, and body stature: an autopsy study of the Sri Lankan population
TLDR
There are variations in HST with gender and no correlation with body stature, with the frontal bone being the thickest among both males and females.

Skull Indices in a Population Collected From Computed Tomographic Scans of Patients with Head Trauma
TLDR
With CT scans as an accurate and suitable source of anthropometric evaluation of body dimensions, the most frequent skull type is dolichocephalic followed by mesocephalic, which seems to be closer to the Anglo-Saxon population considering the rates of dolinocephalic and mesocephaly.
Automated Sagittal Craniosynostosis Classification from CT Images Using Transfer Learning
TLDR
A deep learning-based method to learn advanced features for the classification of CSO subtypes can be more stable, approximate the diagnosis performance of physicians and have the potential to reduce the inter-observer variability thereby providing clinical insight into research and the treatment selection in patients with CSO.
Anatomical variations of the frontal sinus and its relationship with the orbital cavity
TLDR
The data confirm the variability of frontal sinus anatomy and suggest a simple and straightforward classification with potential clinical relevance and fairly predictive of the extent of contact with the orbit in the sagittal plane.

TLDR
Measurements of the cranial vault were obtained at the frontal and occipital poles, using computerized tomographic scans of 192 White, American Indian, Black and Oriental subjects, finding that most American Indian subjects displayed the F = O pattern, most Black subjects the F less than O pattern and most Orientals the F greater than O patterns.
Creating a normative database of age-specific 3D geometrical data, bone density, and bone thickness of the developing skull: a pilot study.
TLDR
This is the first report of normative data on 2D and 3D measurements, skull bone thickness, and skull bone density for children aged 0-20 years and can help build an age-specific FEM of a child's head.
Human cranial vault thickness in a contemporary sample of 1097 autopsy cases: relation to body weight, stature, age, sex and ancestry
TLDR
It was concluded that CVT generally cannot be used as an indicator for any part of the biological profile, including body weight, stature, age, sex, and ancestry.
[Computed tomography of the ethmoid labyrinth and adjacent structures].
TLDR
The detailed anatomic structure of the ostiomeatal complex and the anatomic relation of ethmoid labyrinth to orbit and anterior skull base were revealed by coronal and axial CT scans.
Transcranial MR Imaging–Guided Focused Ultrasound Interventions Using Deep Learning Synthesized CT
TLDR
The feasibility of deep learning techniques to convert MR imaging ultrashort TE images directly to synthetic CT of the skull images for use in transcranial MR imaging–guided focused ultrasound treatment planning is examined.
