Dear All,

I am writing to ask for help regarding the geometry of human femora.
Of most interest to me is the mid-shaft of the femur (from above the
condyles up to the lesser trochanter). This includes the outer femur
as well as the medullar. I am generally interested in the
cross-sectional shape, and the changes in geometry along the shaft.
Cortical thickness and femoral curvature are parameters of interest,
while it is of equal importance that any straight sections along the
shaft should be detailed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I will post a summary of all
replies.

Regards

Paul.
