Abstract

A quantitative computed tomography (QCT) based finite element modeling method was developed for the proximal femur that has acceptable repeatability values for computing whole bone strength in vivo. The coefficient of variation for proximal femoral FE strength prediction was 1.85%. The coefficient of repeatability for detectable serial changes in finite element strength prediction was 5.85%.
