  • Surgical correction of metopic craniosynostosis typically involves open cranial vault remodeling. Accurate translation of the virtual surgical plan into the operating room is challenging due to the lack of tools for intraoperative analysis of the surgical outcome. This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of using a hand-held 3D photography device for intraoperative evaluation and guidance during cranial vault surgical reconstruction.
