    M.C. Ho Ba Tho1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.4, No.3&4, pp. 489-496, 2003, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2003.004.489

    Abstract The objective of the paper is to address the methodology developed to model bone and joints with individualised geometric and material properties from medical image data. An atlas of mechanical properties of human bone has been investigated demonstrating individual differences. From these data, predictive relationships have been established between mechanical properties and quantitative data derived from measurements on medical images. Subsequently, geometric and numerical models of bones with individualised geometrical and mechanical properties have been developed from the same source of image data. The advantages of this modelling technique are its ability to study the `patient' specificity. This should be… More >
