Phantomless calibration of CT scans for fracture risk assessment in cancer patients with femoral bone metastases5 September 2019
In Plos One, Florieke Eggermont, Esther Tanck and colleagues developed a calibration method, which makes clinical implementation of CT-based finite element models as tool for fracture risk assessment easier.
€180k for Orthopaedic Research Laboratory31 January 2019
Researchers of the Orthopaedic Research Laboratory of the Radboudumc, together with the LUMC, received a grant of €180k from the Innovatiefonds Zorgverzekeraars for clinical implementation of patient-specific computer models for fracture risk prediction in patients with bone metastases.
Patient-specific computer models can help predicting fracture risk12 July 2018
Patient-specific computer (finite element (FE)) models are a potential tool to improve clinical fracture risk predictions in patients with metastatic bone disease. That was concluded in a study by Eggermont et al., recently published in Bone and Joint Research.
