VILLARROEL GUERRA, Mauricio y MEDINA OTAZO, Eugenio. Anatomical Technique to Restore and/or Reproduce Human Bone Pieces Difficult to Obtain for Research and Teaching Science. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.2, pp. 532-536. ISSN 0717-9502. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022011000200038.
A technique to reproduce and/or restore human bones for teaching, scientific, academic or artistic purposes is described. This technique allows us to obtain optimal preparations in texture, color, allowing three-dimensionality as well as subtle morphological details of bone pieces. The technique is applied for reproducing human bone pieces that are difficult to obtain, as are the bones of the head. However all types of bone pieces can be used. Our results confirm that this technique has a high degree of reliability compared with the original piece. Therefore the technique can be very useful in teaching and research.
