View Full Version : Relation between BMD and Youngs modulus

Dear collegues:
I am trying to model a fracture callus from CT images. I have calibrated
the CT with a K2HPO4 phantom in order to relate CT Hounsfield number
with BMD. Although several autors have stablish relationships between
BMD and Youngs modulus (E), these are linear and applied to trabecular
bone with low values of BMD and is not useful for extrapolation for
higher BMD values.
There are a lot of information of relationships between E and aparent
density, ash content and so on, but I could not find it for BMD and E.
Does anyone have more information about this kind of relation?

Thank you in advance
