Hello

I am in need of some advice regarding a 3D fe model of the pelvis.
My thesis incorporates FE analysis and therefore a model of
the pelvis has to be generated. I have looked at existing
literature to find that the majority of cases have used CT
scans. However CT scans are patient specific. I would prefer
to take a more simplistic approach to the problem and create
a generic model. Does anybody from the community know of any
data for which I could base the geometry from or has a model
they are willing to share?

Thanks
