Hi everyone...

Could anyone please help by supplying trabecular/cancellous bone
properties, especially Youngs modulus and Poissobns ratio.

I am especially looking for data regarding the talus area, as there
are so many values published and used but they seem to come from
other parts of the body.
I well understand the structure within the talus makes it difficult
to measure due to the strength in different directions, but some
guidance and a wide response would allow me to decide upon the most
appropriate values for my use.

Thanks for any help,
