A new approach to comprehensively evaluate the morphological properties of the human femoral head: example of application to osteoarthritic joint

Flow diagram illustrating the methods to extract the trabecular bone cortical bone volumes for morphometric analysis. Osteoarthritis affects the properties of the joints, changing its shape and mechanical response, and inducing pain to the patient. However, little is known about how these properties are related to the function of the joint, which is fundamental to optimis...

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...
