Summary: In realisation of the proposed project we planned to
examine 350 desarticulated macerated skulls of the collection of Prof.
Perović as well as 200 skulls of adult individuals of the same collection.
Based on these data we planned to perform statistical evaluation concerning
the development of the skull and of corresponding foramina and fissures in
different life peiods. In treating this material we planed to take measures
on original specimens, on x-ray and CT imagining and to perform planimetric
computerised follow up. By treating the mentioed material with described
methods we expect to obtain standards in postnatal development of the
skull, to establish the possible important variations and their frequency.
These data should facilitate the discrimination between normal and deviated
development of the skull bones and its influence on different structures
passing through the foramina and fissures of the skull.
Keywords: Cranium, cranial bones, development of cranium
Research goals: Our institute "Drago Perović" is the unique
institute in possesion the collection of disarticulated and macerated
skulls. 150 specimens belong to the fetal period and 200 to the period from
new born to the end of growth. Because of the extraordinary value this
collection and due to the scientific interest of its investigation it is
necessary to treat this material systematically. The scientific
contribution of these investigations has its applications in the clinical
work as well as in the study of development and correlation of different
elements of the skull. Other information about the project.
