Title

Phineas Gage (1823-1860) 3D STL Software Image

Subject

Gage, Phineas
Three-dimensional imaging

Description

Graham Holt (Director of the Office of Creative Solutions, Laboratories of Cognitive Neuroscience, Boston Children's Hospital) developed the initial Phineas Gage 3D print from CT scans taken by Peter Raitu and Ian Talos (Surgical Planning Laboratory, Brigham & Women’s Hospital). The 3D animation was printed with PLA plastic for the Beyond the Bone Box Collection, a Warren Anatomical Museum curated educational kit sponsored by Harvard Library S. T. Lee Innovation Grant. Gage's skull was separated into two separate files: top and bottom. The damage of the tamping iron accident caused bone damage, fragmentation, and missing pieces.
