The purpose of this study was to develop an automating meshing method for patient-specific modeling. Three-dimensional geometries of two six-month-old infant heads were reconstructed from the CT data. Finite element meshes including cranial bone of skull, brain, and suture were generated. Both static and dynamic analyses were performed to verify the models. The study for blunt impact of infant head was performed by using these patient-specific models.
