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...
