Cyberform International can do this for you, I'm pretty sure.

Their address is:
407 International Parkway, Suite 403
Richardson, Texas 75081
(972) 690-7700
Fax (972) 690-7999

Ask to speak to David Crook.
We have done work with patient CT data converted to .stl and then to
stereolithography models. I have seen their facility and depending on the
CT format you have, he should probably be able to convert this for you. I
don't know what they would charge.

Good Luck,
