Abstract

Understanding the mechanism of osteoporotic femoral neck fractures is important for improving diagnosis and treatments of osteoporosis. Time-elapsed micro-CT imaging, step-wise loading and Digital Volume Correlation (DVC) can provide the volumetric deformation in small bone specimens [1] and vertebral bodies [2], but its application to the proximal human femur is challenging. This study aims at developing a protocol to measure volumetric strain distribution from synchrotron micro-CT images of the human proximal femur, while subjected to incremental loading up to fracture.
