Dear BIOMECH-L members,

I am working on an MS thesis in Mech. Engr. currently working on
stress fractures on femur bones.

I 'm looking for proximal femur bone models ready to import into
Cosmos/m.(FEA program) The femur bones can be in all age groups , but the
models need to have the cortical bone defined. A perfect model would be a
proximal femur that could mesh the cortical layer and then be hollow to
create a mesh of the trabecular region.
Can anyone suggest any resources where I can find such a model? I'm
primarily looking for an institution that has tomography equipment to produce
such models. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you for your time,
