Bone geometry source

Bone geometry source

Bone geometry source

Hi all, I am a researcher and am conducting research about bone tissue modeling, biomechanics, and FEA. I am good in doing experimental setups. But, I don't have much experience in conducting computer modeling in such major.

I am working to model bone tissue (both cortical + trabecular ) with a certain technique. The literature say that bone geometry can either be obtained from:

CT scan or,
Drawing using CAD softwares!

Please, it will be greatly appreciated if you can address this inquiry: which of the above mentioned methods is the best to obtain bone geometry for accurate modeling?

Thank you.

RE: Bone geometry source

IceBreakerSource, thank you for your response.

I am working on modeling the bones of ( subtalar joint ) located in human foot and ankle. Specifically, Talus and Calcaneus. The experimental data that I have are from applying torsion load on the joint. I want to create a model that simulates that ( applying torsion load on the subtalar joint )!

Any ideas will be great!

Thank you again ...
