Heterogeneous strain distribution in the subchondral bone of osteoarthritic femoral heads measured with digital volume correlation

Osteoarthritis affects the properties of the joints, changing its shape and mechanical response, and inducing pain to the patient. We still do not know how the complex structure of osteoarthritic bone deforms under load, due to the challenging experimental approaches required to evaluate the internal deformation in bone specimens. The goal of this study was to develop a method...

Journal of Biomechanics: Accuracy of synchrotron based digital volume correlation for bone tissue

MultiSim's Dr Enrico Dall'Ara  talks about his paper on the accuracy of synchrotron-based digital volume correlation for bone tissue. His research was featured on the homepage of the Journal of Biomechanics edition published in July 2017. Understanding bone mechanics at different hierarchical levels is fundamental to improve preclinical and clinical assessments of bone stren...
