29 March 2016 Linking bone microarchitecture to projections texture analysis
Author Affiliations +
Trabecular bone and its microarchitecture are of prime importance for health. This paper focuses onto the relationship between bone microarchitecture and the texture found on micro CT projections. From a small animal study, 5 mice legs were studied by microCT at a resolution of 6μm. The 3D reconstructions are only used as ground truth for their microarchitecture parameters. The study uses 2 different sets of tomographic data : 3 volumes acquired at ANU in Canberra and 2 volumes acquired in Nantes. For each projection set, we determine the texture orientation onto a ROI region of both medial epiphysis and diaphisys using a local variance computed onto Mojette projections from the ROI.
