  1. 1. Optimization of an advanced algorithm for bone imaging

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik

    Author : Adam Mrozek; [2022]
    Keywords : osteoporosis; optimization; programming; engineering; X-ray; bone; mineral density; speed; faster; projection; MATLAB; C ; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Fracture risk in osteoporosis is increased and osteoporosis is the most common metabolic bone disease and treatment is expensive. Osteoporosis is diagnosed by measuring Bone Mineral Density (BMD), which does not consider other factors such as bone geometry or architecture. READ MORE

  2. 2. Deep Learning-Based Skeleton Segmentation for Analysis of Bone Marrow and Cortical Bone in Water-Fat Magnetic Resonance Imaging

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Adham Belbaisi; [2021]
    Keywords : Water-fat MRI; UK Biobank; Deep learning; Skeleton segmentation; Bone marrow; Cortical bone;

    Abstract : A major health concern for subjects with diabetes is weaker bones and increased fracture risk. Current clinical assessment of the bone strength is performed by measuring Bone Mineral Density (BMD), where low BMD-values are associated with an increased risk of fracture. READ MORE

  3. 3. FE Modelling Of Two Femur Fixation Implants

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Mekanik och hållfasthetslära

    Author : Ali Arsiwala; Vatsal Shukla; [2021]
    Keywords : FEM; Femur; Image Segmentation; Material Modelling; Recon Implant; Antegrade Implant; Atypical Femoral Fracture; Intermedullary Nail;

    Abstract : In the pool of women over the age of 50, the likeliness of an atypical fracture increase drastically, partly due to osteoporosis. With a pre-existing implant in the femur bone, inserted due to a prior atypical fracture, treating a later femoral neck fracture is complex and risky. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dynamic Finite Element Modelling of a Fall on the Hip

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik

    Author : Nils Nyberg; [2021]
    Keywords : Hip Fracture; Finite Element Modeling; Finite Element; Femur Fracture; Sideways Fall; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Assessing the risk of future femur fracture is an important step in preventing this serious and common injury. The current methods to predict the fracture risk are typically based on bone mineral density measurement, used as a surrogate for femoral strength. READ MORE

  5. 5. The effect of vessel holes on fracture behaviour in the femoral neck of the human femur

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik

    Author : Sofia Rokkones; Karin Odin; [2020]
    Keywords : image analysis; femur; FE model; biomechanics; CT image; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Hip fractures are widely spread in today's society and affect a person's quality of life. Osteoporosis is a bone disease that results in more fragile bones and an increased risk of bone fractures, including hip fractures. A method proposed for assessing the fracture risk is finite element (FE) models of the femur. READ MORE
