3D Printed Paranasal Sinus Model
At the forefront of medicine and technology, we are proud to offer these incredible, uncompromised replicas of human anatomy. Using the latest 3D printing technology and materials available, this model is an exact replica of a human cadaver, brought to "life" by extensive medical scanning and manufacturing technologies. Over are the days of using ethically questionable cadavers, the mess of hazardous preservation chemicals, and the inaccuracies of plastinated models that often over-enhance anatomy for display, not realism. See the future, and the beauty, of real human anatomy with these incredible anatomical replicas!
This unique model has been created from CT imaging and segmentation of the internal spaces of the viscerocranium. Parts of the skull have been retained but sections or windows have been removed to expose the paranasal sinuses. The paired frontal sinuses, with the right being partially subdivided, are coloured blue. The left frontal sinus is largely surrounded by frontal bone, while the right is completely exposed and shows the frontonasal ostium which drain as a funnel shaped tube into the infundibuklum of the middle meatus of the nasal cavity. The ethmoid sinuses or air cells, coloured purple, are only shown on the left. The medial wall of the orbit composed of the orbital plate of the ethmoid bone is retained. The maxillary sinus (green) on the left has been partly exposed and partly left within the maxilla. The opening of the maxillary sinus into the lateral wall of the nose is barely discernable as a small green patch in the middle meatus. The left sphenoid sinus (pink) is also displayed, within the opened sphenoid bone.
Please Note: Thanks to the flexibility of manufacturing that 3D Printing offers, this model is "printed to order", and is not typically available for immediate shipment. Most models are printed within 15 working days and arrive within 3-5 weeks of ordering, and once an order is submitted to us, it cannot be canceled or altered. Please contact us if you have specific a specific delivery date requirement, and we will do our best to deliver the model by your target date.
