  • 2D/3D images of human femur

    Hello all,

    I have a few requests for the group. We have written some FEA custom code
    in an attempt to create a 3D orthotropic femur that achieves density and
    orientation following iterative loading. We wanted to check our results
    with some basic clinical images before taking the next step. So, does
    anyone have a 3D CT of an adult proximal femur (non-pathologic)? I know
    that Scion (NIH) software can be used for image analysis, but do people us
    this tool to calculate cortical density, trabecular orientation and volume
    fraction? If there is any MatLab code that someone would be willing to
    share (with proper acknowledgement), we would appreciate it. Finally, does
    anyone have 2D slices or contact radiographs of a pediatric femur? The
    pediatric data will be very helpful in developing the growing femur model.

    Thanks to all in advance.
