INTRODUCTION Adaptation of bone to different loads has received much attention. This paper examines the consequences of differences in size on bones from the same animal species. METHODS The study was conducted on 32 canine radii. Their geometry, densitometry and mechanical properties were determined and one-way ANOVA was used to analyze their(More)
The aim of the present study is to characterize the microstructure of composite scaffolds for bone tissue regeneration containing different ratios of chitosan/gelatin blend and bioactive glasses. Starting from realistic 3D models of the scaffolds reconstructed from micro-CT images, the level of heterogeneity of scaffold architecture is evaluated performing(More)
Many applications in orthopaedic surgery require the creation of personalised design models that can serve as the basis for navigation in computer aided surgery systems or be used to create a personalised model to perform structural analysis during pre-operative planning or post-operative follow-up. The paper introduces a method for developing a(More)
