The article deals with the examination of the relationships between density, structure parameters and strength of human trabecular bone. The tests were carried out on the samples taken from osteoporotic and coxarthrotic human femoral heads. The samples cylindrical in shape had the diameters of 10 mm and the height of 8.5 mm. During the tests with microCT(More)
This paper presents the results of a study of 61 trabecular bone samples exposed to a cyclic (1 Hz) compression load. The load was increased stepwise. Characteristic patterns of the hysteresis loop for the middle cycles of successive steps of load and for respective steps of load are presented. Characteristic patterns of secant modulus were also determined.(More)
The paper presents linear, logarithmic and exponential regression tabecular bone indices, fractal dimensions and strength. The analysis of the above parameters was supported by determining non-parametric correlation coefficients: Spearman's ρ, gamma and Kendall's τ. The principal components' analysis (PCA) was also performed in order to reduce the number of(More)
Trabecular bone cores were collected from the femoral head at the time of surgery (hip arthroplasty). Investigated were 42 specimens, from patients with osteoporosis and coxarthrosis. The cores were scanned used computer microtomography (microCT) system at an isotropic spatial resolution of 36 microns. Image stacks were converted to finite element models(More)
INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS Some papers have shown that bone mineral density (BMD) may not be accurate in predicting fracture risk. Recently microarchitecture parameters have been reported to give information on bone characteristics. The aim of this study was to find out if the values of volume, fractal dimension, and bone mineral density are correlated(More)
