This repository contains the automatically generated (with minor manual post-processing) cranial implants (in NRRD format) for the 29 craniotomy skulls in the MUG500+ dataset ( and the 11 defective skulls from Task 2 of the AutoImplant II challenge (

The implants together with the corresponding skulls could serve the following purposes:

1) as test samples, where the implants are the baseline results

2) as the training samples

3) as educational tools (e.g., 3D Printing)

The video ('implant manual cleaning.mp4') shows how the resulting implant (subtraction between the reconstructed skull and the defective skull) can be post-processed manually using 3D slicer.
