Abstract

Few skulls of patients with mandibulofacial dysostosis (MFD) have been available for study, presumably due to the nonlethality and rarity of the syndrome. Recent developments in medical imaging make it possible to examine skulls of living patients in an interactive fashion without the limitations of onventional radiographs or CT scans. We have utilized three-dimensional osseous surface reconstruction mages from CT scan data to study the in vivo skeletal anatomy of 14 patients with MFD (Fig. 1).
