Development of an in silico model for prediction of in vivo human bone fracture healing using micro-finite element analysis

Project description

A model for predicting bone healing

When it comes to bone fractures, existing assessment tools lack the resolution to identify and isolate the initial fracture sites, especially if these are located in the distal part of the bone known as metaphysis. The aim of the EU-funded HealinguFE project is to develop a tool for identifying such microfractures and predicting their healing evolution. Using high-resolution peripheral computed tomography data from patients with wrist fractures, scientists will develop an in silico model capable of detecting structural changes in the bone. The generated tool will advance existing knowledge on the mechanisms underlying trabecular bone healing and fuel future research towards novel interventions.
