In vivo precision of three HR-pQCT-derived finite element models of the distal radius and tibia in postmenopausal women

Abstract

BACKGROUND The distal radius is the most common osteoporotic fracture site occurring in postmenopausal women. Finite element (FE) modeling is a non-invasive mathematical technique that can estimate bone strength using inputted geometry/micro-architecture and tissue material properties from computed tomographic images. Our first objective was to define and… (More)
