Researchers in the Biomedical Engineering Centre (BEC) at Memorial University of Newfoundland are studying the structural and biomechanical properties of the human femur in order to better model and test hip prostheses. The advent of computed tomography (CT) technology has allowed researchers to visualize and use 3D anatomical data for such studies. In an attempt to generate realistic and useful 3D computer models of the human femur, BEC researchers have been using geometric and densimetric… CONTINUE READING
