About This File

This is a .stl file of a left temporal bone ready for 3d printing.


I have segmented a CT scan paying attention to all the important bony structures of the ear.
In the .stl screenshots you can see the mastoid, malleus, incus, the bony canal of the facial nerve, the stylomastoid foramen Etc.
I do this for my training and the idea is to perform a mastoidectomy just in my desktop
i have printed my personal 3d plaster model (you can see in the screenshots) but i haven't the courage to destroy it with the drill..... :):):(


I hope that my work can be of help to anyone who wants to try to drill a faithful model of temporal bone at home or simply want to study the anatomy in a versatile 3d .stl Model


Good Job

I was really impressed with the amount of detail that has gone into this model.
As someone who has just started researching the structure of the inner ear; the combination of this model and "Left Bony Labyrinth"has given me a greater appreciation for where everything is in relation to each other. 


Thank you dignic.
