Mathematical relationships between bone density and mechanical properties: a literature review.
BACKGROUND In many published studies, elastic properties of bone are correlated to the bone density, in order to derive an empirical elasticity-density relationship. The most common use of theseExpand

The material mapping strategy influences the accuracy of CT-based finite element models of bones: an evaluation against experimental measurements.
Aim of the present study was to evaluate the influence on the global model's accuracy of the strategy adopted to define the average element Young's modulus in subject-specific finite element modelsExpand

A modified method for assigning material properties to FE models of bones.
The aim of the present study is to compare the results from subject-specific finite element analysis (FEA) of a human femur to experimental measurements, using two different methods for assigningExpand

Comparison of explicit finite element and mechanical simulation of the proximal femur during dynamic drop-tower testing.
Current screening techniques based on areal bone mineral density (aBMD) measurements are unable to identify the majority of people who sustain hip fractures. Biomechanical examination of such eventsExpand

Development of a balanced experimental-computational approach to understanding the mechanics of proximal femur fractures.
The majority of people who sustain hip fractures after a fall to the side would not have been identified using current screening techniques such as areal bone mineral density. Identifying them,Expand

Interactive graph-cut segmentation for fast creation of finite element models from clinical ct data for hip fracture prediction
Abstract In this study, we propose interactive graph cut image segmentation for fast creation of femur finite element (FE) models from clinical computed tomography scans for hip fracture prediction.Expand

Muscle, tendons, and bone: structural changes during denervation and FES treatment
Abstract Objectives: This paper describes a novel approach to determine structural changes in bone, muscle, and tendons using medical imaging, finite element models, and processing techniques toExpand

The influence of the modulus-density relationship and the material mapping method on the simulated mechanical response of the proximal femur in side-ways fall loading configuration.
Contributing to slow advance of finite element (FE) simulations for hip fracture risk prediction, into clinical practice, could be a lack of consensus in the biomechanics community on how to mapExpand

Morphology based anisotropic finite element models of the proximal femur validated with experimental data.
Finite element analysis (FEA) of bones scanned with Quantitative Computed Tomography (QCT) can improve early detection of osteoporosis. The accuracy of these models partially depends on the assignedExpand
