Notes

The vibrating saw, also known as the 'Stryker saw', is an essential instrument for pathologists. The saw may be used for removing the skull cap, making linear cuts, or taking small bone specimens. The blade moves backwards and forwards very rapidly which prevents the saw from cutting soft tissues.
