View Full Version : Scan data of human femur

08-08-2005, 12:26 PM
Dear subscribers,

Im a master student at University of Sherbrooke(Canada) interested in studying
the morphology of the human proximal femur using high-resolution images (voxel
size less than 100m). I need to be able to calculate some morphometric
parameters like Tb.Th, Tb.Sp, BV/TV, anisotropy, connectivity, ... from theses
images. I also want to do some 3D reconstructions with theses images in order
to generate some finite element models. Theses models will be very helpful in
order to try to relate some morphometric values to the mechanical properties of
the trabecular bone.

I have no data yet, though I wonder if anybody would be interested to share this
kind of data with me or to point me to any places where to get it?

Thanks a lot in advance for your precious help!

Best regards,

David Dupuis
