Paper Abstract

Tills paper presents a new system that reconstructs, visualizes and classifies trabecular bone structure by using microscopic image slices. In this study, we evaluated the structure of a trabecular bone using 3D X-ray imaging after passing through the special image enhancement and de-nosing algorithms. We propose a new simple imaging technique tool for the quantification of structural changes within the micro architecture of human bones by enhancing the characteristics attributes of the bone architecture from μ-CT scans. Computer simulation illustrates that the presented imaging technique has the potential to become a powerful tool to investigate the structure of trabeculae during in vivo measurements.
