Comparison of HR-pQCT- and microCT-based finite element models

The bedrock of developing robust Virtual Physiological Human is a robust and accurate digital transformation of existing medical procedures. The development of high-resolution imaging systems such as HR-pQCT (High Resolution Peripheral Quantitative Computed Tomography) has provided clinicians with a powerful tool for a 3D visualisation of patients’ internal bone structures (e...
