24 October 1997 Applications of synchrotron microtomography in osteoporosis research
Author Affiliations +
Synchrotron microtomography enables us to visualize trabecular bone microarchitecture in 3D with a spatial resolution of a few microns. With recent developments in finite element modeling, it is possible to incorporate these images voxel by voxel into a finite-element model of the elastic properties of the bone. The ability to calculate mechanical behavior from 3D images will help us to understand the relationships between bone structure and properties.
