SummarySpeckle interferometry is a non-destructive measurement technique using a laser. The principles of the method are described. Human hyoid bones.(n = 10) were investigated. Loads were applied to individual points on the anterior surface of the body of hyoid bones. All hyoid bones showed an asymmetric displacement. The displacement was greatest in a plane vertical to the load. An evaluation of fracture behavior is possible due to the displacement pattern.ZusammenfassungDie Speckle… Expand

Symmetry and isometry of human adult hyoid bone: A cadaveric study in North Indian population
Hyoid bone is not bilaterally symmetrical bone, and the incidence of asymmetrical and anisometric bones is more as compared with symmetrical and isometric bones in both the sexes. Expand
connection with the age and bibliographical revision on the fractures of the hioides in forensic medicine.
It is suggested that it isnt possible to predict the state of fusion of the major cornua in subjects of known sex and age, and in cases of non union of majorCornua it shouldnt be supossed that fractures of the hyoid won't happen. Expand

It is observed that the femur behaves as a bending beam and that the holographic technique allows the position of maximal deflection to be identified and the magnitude of femoral displacement from the load axis to be determined at any point within the field of view. Expand

It is shown that the femur bends as a beam under axial load and the position of maximum deflection is a function of the properties of the composite structure. Expand
