Research Biography

Associate Professor Egon Perilli, Medical Device Research Institute, Flinders University; Affiliate Lecturer, Discipline of Anatomy & Pathology, School of Medical Sciences, The University of Adelaide; Honorary Fellow, Dept. of Medicine, Austin Health, The University of Melbourne. Between 2008-2011: Senior Research Fellow, Bone & Joint Research Lab, Surgical Pathology, SA Pathology, Adelaide. His research is in 2D and 3D quantitative imaging of bone structure and biomaterials combined with biomechanical testing. The main field of research is in osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.

He is the current President (2018-2021) of the Australian & New Zealand Orthopaedic Research Society (ANZORS); 2015-2018 ANZORS Society Secretary.
2018- Board member, International Federation of Musculoskeletal Research Societies (IFMRS).

He developed his scientific research background in Europe. 2007-2008: Post-Doctoral Researcher at company SkyScan, Kontich, Belgium (micro-CT systems manufacturer, now Bruker micro-CT), in collaboration with Visionlab, Dept. of Physics, University of Antwerp, Belgium. 2002-2007: Scientific researcher at Medical Technology Laboratory, Istituti Ortopedici Rizzoli, Bologna, Italy, carrying out research in bone micro-CT imaging combined with biomechanical testing.

His research projects involve a number of medical imaging techniques, in particular state of the art micro-CT, both in vitro and in vivo, of bone samples and entire bone segments, on human tissue and animal models. These techniques are used for quantitatively determining bone structure at micro and macro level, density and morphometry. The mechanical strength of the bone is determined via experimental testing, for investigating the relationships between bone structural parameters and mechanical properties.

He is supervisor of bone and joint-related research topics for post-doc, PhD and Honours projects. He is peer-reviewer for a number of international scientific journals; reviewer for Australian Research Council (ARC), National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC), Wellcome Trust (UK), Research Foundation Flaanders (Belgium), Dutch Arthririts Foundation (Netherlands).

Research Interests

My research is in 2D and 3D quantitative imaging of bone structure and biomaterials combined with biomechanical testing. The main field of investigation is in musculoskeletal diseases, such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. The projects I am active in involve a number of biomedical imaging techniques, in particular state of the art micro-CT, both in vitro and in vivo, of bone samples and entire bone segments, on human tissue and animal models. These techniques are used for quantitatively determining bone structure, density and morphometric parameters. The mechanical strength of the bone is determined via experimental testing, for investigating the relationships between bone structural parameters and mechanical properties of the sample.The application of digital volume correlation (DVC) on the images enables to compute displacements and strains.
