Comparative Study of Mechanical Properties of Bone Tissue Based on the CT and the µCT Slices
This article deals with presentation of data processing obtained from imaging CT (computer tomography) and micro CT devices. These methods enable to perform bone tissue density analysis by non-invasive way. The image processing methods, by which it is possible to determine mechanical properties of bone tissue, are described in this paper. Further, a creation of a computational model with different bone density of cancellous tissue is described and afterwards the stress strain analysis is performed. The mandible segments with different bone density were used as samples. Results show significantly higher stresses are reached in a cancellous bone tissue with worse bone quality.
