Dr. John Meara, M.D., D.M.D, at Boston Children’s Hospital, already helped five patients with Tessier facial clefts, a rare congenital, craniofacial anomaly. Recently, he was able to help a patient with a large fissure in her facial bone, which pushed her eyes far apart. To get a better understanding of her complex bone structure, the team uploaded her CT data into the Mimics Innovation Suite to make 3D virtual models of her skull that they could then print out.
