    AbstractIntraosseous lipomas are among the most uncommon bone tumors. They arise most often in the appendicular skeleton. There are very few reported cases of intraosseous lipomas within the skull bones. We report a case of intraosseous lipoma of the frontal bone with conventional radiography...

    Supernumerary ossicles (or Wormian bones) of the cranial vault are formations associated with insufficient rate of suture closure, and regarded as “epigenetic” and “hypostotic” traits. These bones rest along sutures and/or fill fontanelles of the neonatal skull. In this...

A method based on CT replacement is proposed in order to circumvent the related problems with the missing information to modeling. The method is based on digital image processing and swarm intelligence...
