Paper Abstract

The spatial distribution of ultimate bone strength in trabecular bone at the proximal tibial epiphysis was calculated from x-ray computed tomography (CT) images. The distribution obtained was displayed in pseudo 3D plots generated by a standard computer graphics routine. Clinical examples in normal and malaligned knees exhibit remodelling of bone strength in accordance with Wolffsl theorem. It is found that pseudo 3D plots of bone strength patterns may yield valuable informations in clinical practice as well as in basic biomechanical research.
