The longitudinal effects of ovariectomy on the morphometric, densitometric and mechanical properties in the murine tibia: A comparison between two mouse strains

A thorough assessment of any prospective animal model of human disease is necessary before the substantial investment of resources into a preclinical study of potential therapies. Oestrogen-deficiency and related bone loss following ovariectomy is a common animal model of osteoporosis. In this study we quantified the effects of ovariectomy on the tibia bone morphometric, densi...

Finite Element Modelling of the Developing Infant Femur Using Paired CT and MRI Scans

Finite Element models of infant femur (left– 4 months; right– 7 months) Through the MultiSim project in Sheffield, we have pioneered modelling technologies to investigate very young children’s bone using personalised computer models based on CT and MRI scans. This work is the first of its kind to combine information obtained from paired CT/MRI data in order to create deta...

Effect of cell sample size in atomic force microscopy nanoindentation

Graphical Abstract, showing cells, atomic force microscopy and the effect of sample size on the coefficient of variance of the Young's modulus of the cells Cells in the human body can be classified in many different ways. One of these is looking at their mechanical properties, and therefore at how stiff or soft they are. This characteristic has been shown to correlate to d...

Prenatal growth map of the mouse knee joint by means of deformable registration technique

Methodological Pipeline Joint morphogenesis is the process of development of the joint that starts before the birth. It is important to study joint morphogenesis in order to understand how it is related to musculoskeletal diseases and to optimise related interventions. In several cases the interventions are tested on animal models and the mouse pre-natal model is typic...
