Brody's Head Scans

I thought you might like to see the progress Brody has made while wearing his helmet. The picture on the left is one of the first scans we did on 4/2/09. The picture on the right is just 5 weeks later on 5/14/09. You can definitely see how it has become more symmetrical and rounded out in the back. On 4/2 his head's asymmetry was 8.9 and by 5/14 he was down to 5.8...I am guessing you want this number as close to 0 as possible meaning it would be symmetrical. If you don't remember from math class, symmetrical essentially means both sides are the same.

Tomorrow we have his 8 week appointment . I don't think they will be doing another scan at this point...just making adjustments as his head grows. Starting tomorrow, we are also going to be a little more flexible on the helmet wearing. Currently he has been wearing it 23 hours a day and we will be moving to him wearing it only in air conditioning and all night. This might continue another 2 months but we will continue to check progress every 3 weeks. I am anxious to see another head scan in a few weeks!
