Introduction: Plastination is the method of long term preservation of the biological tissues with completely visible surface and high durability. In this technique, the water and fat of the body are replaced by certain polymers. The specimens obtained after plastination are called as Plastinates. It was developed by Dr. Gunther von Hagens in 1978 at the Heidelberg University in Germany. Sheet plastination involve the making of thin transparent of thick opaque section body or an organ.
Material and Method: The study was conducted at Dr S N Medical College Jodhpur Rajasthan. Human cadaver fixed in 10 % formalin was used in this study. Cadaveric brain is used and 2- 5 mm slices are prepared with sharp knife indifferent levels.
Result: Sheet plastinated finished specimen are durable, easily labelled, make superb backlight museum exhibit for teaching and also offer enormous research possibilities.
Conclusion: The combination of plastination and radiological technique as describes in this study will allow students, radiologist and anatomist to gain better insight into the three dimensional relation of anatozmical structures in brain and certain region also.
