Survey on the dissemination of 3D models of human skeletal remains

Recommended Posts

Sharing for another anthropologist in case anybody here is interested in contributing their thoughts about sharing images and 3D models of human bones. 

 

This is the link to a survey called "Perspective on the dissemination of three-dimensional models of human skeletal remains online in the United States." https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc-6lvKD9oPu69YVf_aWrnZC2JFNrBred_DM8Xj3xqfauNveQ/viewform

 

Thanks!

It is for anyone. I have mostly seen it shared in anthropology forums, but I think input from the biomedical community would be useful to the survey authors, esp regarding modern human data.

Terrie,

Speaking of sharing anthropology files online, embodi3D has a dedicated section in the file library for anthropological files. But, it hasn't been active at all. Do you have any ideas for how we can get better sharing in this field? We'd like to help promote 3D printing in anthropology as well as medicine.

Thanks in advance,

And are people from other countries allowed to participate or only for folks from the USA? :)

For this particular survey, they are requesting only USA residents. The first survey was conducted in Portugal. If a 3rd survey comes out, I'll be sure to post the link for that as well.

I know! Anthropologists tend to use Morphosource, although I haven't seen clinically derived data there. As you might have gathered from the survey, there is much discussion in anthropology about the ethics of sharing/posting human skeletal data, especially with clinical CT data becoming more accessible.

 

I have full and cut facial models from TCIA--would that be ok to post here? I have also built 3D html pages that allow interaction with the models that I'm trying to find/build a home for so that I could possibly also cross-reference to printable models here.
