The Effect of Quantitative Computed Tomography Acquisition Protocols on Bone Mineral Density Estimation.

Abstract

Osteoporosis is characterized by bony material loss and decreased bone strength leading to a significant increase in fracture risk. Patient-specific quantitative computed tomography (QCT) finite element (FE) models may be used to predict fracture under physiological loading. Material properties for the FE models used to predict fracture are obtained by… (More)
