Abstract:This study aimed to assess the correlation of the location- and direction-dependent mechanical and structural properties of trabecular bone using the wave propagation and imaging methods and to propose a non-invasive approach for the assessment of the quality of trabecular bone. Two bovine femur trabecular bone specimens were prepared and tested using the Rayleigh wave propagation tests and CT-scan imaging. The elastic modulus of the specimens was estimated in different regions of interest (ROIs) and wave prop… Show more
