Good morning,

We now have two sets of fetal osteology scans available. One set is for a fetus who died at 6-6.5 months gestational age and the other is for a fetus 8-8.5 months of age. We are continuing to scan elements and will make them available as soon as they are finished but so far we have the following bones available for download:

Fetus (6-6.5 months gestational age)

Left humerus, radius, ulna, tibia

Right humerus, radius, ulna, femur, tibia

Fetus (8-8.5 months gestational age)

occipital squama, sphenoid body

Left petrous temporal, pars lateralis, sphenoid greater wing, malar, maxilla, mandible, clavicle, scapula, femur, tibia, fibula

Right ribs 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10

We are also beginning the process of scanning adult dentition and we have the following teeth available:

Left maxillary lateral incisor, premolar, molar

Left mandibular molar

And, we are also scanning some of the pathological specimens in our skeletal collection. So far, we have spinal elements from a 68-year-old male who died of a pulmonary embolism (a complication of his lung cancer). He had spondylolisthesis and ankylosis of C-5 through 6; T-9 through 10; and T-10 to L-1. We have scanned most of the vertebral elements but are still working on T-9 through 10; and T-10 to L-1.

For all of these specimens, obj and scn files are available for download to members of the team platform. Please fill out the form below with an academic email address to access the scans.
