Paper Abstract

Of all the capabilities of holography for image processing and measuring purposes, holographic interferometry has found the broadest application in biological and medical research. As a technique, which is non-destructive and allows for high resolving deformation analysis, holographic interferometry has gained popularity over the recent years in experimental biomechanics and orthopaedics. Some examples of holographic interferometry in experimental orthopaedics are reviewed in this report. The possibility of using holographic interferometry to study the behaviour of broken bones supported by fixing devices is pointed out in this review.
