Fractal dimension (FD) can be used to characterize microstructure of porous media, particularly bone tissue. The porous microstructure of cortical bone is observable in micro-CT (μCT) images. Estimations of fractal dimensions of μCT images of coupons of human cortical bone are obtained. The same samples were tested on a tensile test machine and Young's modulus (YM) and Failure stress were obtained. When both types of measures were compared, a clear correlation was found (R=-81%, P<0.01). Young… CONTINUE READING
