Measurement helps craniofacial surgeons better evaluate children with skull deformity

(University of Missouri-Columbia) A baby's skull is made of several plates of bone that fuse together over time to form a single structure. Plates that fuse too early can cause cranial deformities that can lead to learning impairments and other neurodevelopmental problems. Craniofacial surgeons across the country differ on when intervention is needed for some abnormalities.
