Comparison of 3D finite element analysis derived stiffness and BMD to determine the failure load of the excised proximal femur
Langton, C.M., Pisharody, S., & Keyak, J. H. (2009) Comparison of 3D finite element analysis derived stiffness and BMD to determine the failure load of the excised proximal femur. Bone, 44(1), s84-s85.
Bone mineral density (BMD) is currently the preferred surrogate for bone strength in clinical practice. Finite element analysis (FEA) is a computer simulation technique that can predict the deformation of a structure when a load is applied, providing a measure of stiffness (N mm− 1). Finite element analysis of X-ray images (3D-FEXI) is a FEA technique whose analysis is derived from a single 2D radiographic image.
This ex-vivo study demonstrates that 3D-FEXI derived from a conventional 2D radiographic image has the potential to significantly increase the accuracy of failure load assessment of the proximal femur compared with that currently achieved with BMD.
