A 3-D model of a skull of a female patient with the genetic disease Treacher-collins. The model also has titanium plates connected to it which was added to rebuild her face as a result of this genetic condition.
The plastic model of a female skull on the left shows the treatment available to a person with Treacher Collins’ syndrome, a genetic disorder. This affects the normal development of the skull around the lower jaw and the cheek bone area. The titanium plates are used to help stabilise and rebuild the skull. It is shown here with a model of an untreated skull with Treacher Collins' syndrome (2001-212).
