Empirical relationships between bone density and ultimate strength: A literature review

Ingmar Fleps, Hassan Bahaloo, Philippe K. Zysset, Stephen J. Ferguson, Halldór Pálsson & Benedikt Helgason
Introduction Ultimate strength-density relationships for bone have been reported with widely varying results. Reliable bone strength predictions are crucial for many applications that aim to assess bone failure. Bone density and bone morphology have been proposed to explain most of the variance in measured bone strength. If this holds true, it could lead to the derivation of a single ultimate strength-density-morphology relationship for all anatomical sites. Methods All relevant literature was reviewed. Ultimate strength-density relationships...
