The models, designed by experts at the RCS are used by neurosurgeons to practise treating patients with serious head injuries.

They are part of an exhibition exploring how pioneering anatomists and surgeons have developed striking 3D models of the brain, heart, lungs, kidneys, liver and limbs to improve surgical training and patient care over the years.

Medical models have been used to train and educate surgeons for centuries. This very exciting exhibition shows some of the more imaginative - and modern - techniques that have transformed surgery for patients in this country.
