To improve the planning phase for pediatric craniofacial surgery, 3D reconstructions of CT image series were performed on a personal computer. For construction of true models of the surgical site, two concepts were pursued. CT image data of six patients were used for model manufacturing by a conventional 21/2 axis milling system. The material used was polyurethane foam. Alternatively, in one patient a stereolithography was produced on the basis of the 3D reconstructed CT data. This new…
