Dear David,

there is a microCT dataset free available on the internet (BEL repository).
It is a dataset of microCT scans (19.5 microns) of a sample of trabecular
bone of human femur. It was announced on the Biomch-L list two years ago,
and until now it has been downloaded by a lot of users (thank you all!).
Please find the link to the website
http://www.tecno.ior.it/VRLAB/researchers/repository/BEL_repository.html#MicroCTscans
and details in the rest of this email (I included the original announcement).

Regards,
Egon

Announcement: (date 9/16/2003)

MicroCT dataset free available


Dear list members,

this is to inform you that a full MicroCT examination of a human bone
biopsy (femoral neck) is freely available on the Biomechanics European
Laboratory (BEL) repository.
Bone datasets have been obtained by use of an X-ray MicroCT at the
Laboratorio di Tecnologia Medica (http://www.tecno.ior.it) of the Istituti
Ortopedici Rizzoli (http://www.ior.it ), Bologna, Italy.


The following MicroCT datasets are freely available:

- acquisition dataset (frontal X-ray images, 1024 Pix x 1024 Pix, .tiff)
- reconstruction dataset (2D slices - horizontal images, 1024 Pix x 1024
Pix, .bmp)
- ROI extraction dataset (208 Pix x 208 Pix, .bmp)
- ROI binarised dataset (208 Pix x 208 Pix, .bmp)
- Histomorphometric analysis (.txt file)


The datasets can be downloaded freely from the BEL repository:
http://www.tecno.ior.it/VRLAB/researchers/repository/BEL_repository.html#MicroCTscans

More info about the bone examined and the datasets available can be found at:

Info about the BEL repository can be found at:
http://www.tecno.ior.it/VRLAB/researchers/repository/biomech_repositories.html

The BEL repository is the sharing initiative promoted by the Biomechanics
European Lab. For more information on this virtual laboratory see:

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
