Communication

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.
