Caption: Monochrome 3-D image showing a frontal view of the skull of an infant suffering from a skull growth abnormality. The image is one of a number of computer reconstructions from a series of conventional computed tomography (CT) scans that were used in planning & simulating the necessary corrective surgery. In a normal infant, vertical grooves in the skull (the cranial sutures) remain open throughout the 1st year of life, acting as expansion joints for the growing brain. In this case, a fused suture has caused uneven growth. This image reveals facial asymmetry. The right eye socket (orbit) on left of image is vertically enlarged, compared to the left orbit.
