I'm going from CT data to 3D printing of pediatric skull models. We need to increase the thickness of thin tissues to keep the printer happy. Does anyone know of a morphological operation/algorithm or MatLab script which will dilate thin parts of the object while ignoring other areas? I imagine this is best done before converting the object to a mesh, but am open to solutions either working with the original CT data or post-processing after converting to an STL.

Has somebody tried to assess the total fat volume after using tumescent liposuction with lipoaspirate far greater than 500ml?
Although the success of liposuction is not determined by absolute weight loss, patients are often told the volume of the lipoaspirate which is the supernatant fluid after several minutes without movement.
Yet, the fatty tissue should be socken with the tumescent solution and so overrating the actual amount of fat harvested.
While evaluating liters of lipoaspirate is not comfortable, perhaps taking a 10ml syringe sample to centrifugation may give a good estimate in relation?
