Fracture healing, Ultrasound propagation, FEM modelling


Ultrasound wave propagation in fractured long bones is studied using the Finite Element (FE) Method. The 3D long bone model (geometry and material properties) is obtained from CT scans. Callus consolidation is modelled as a series of maturation stages. The numerical results are compared with experimental observations.
