522 A Leap of Computational Bone Mechanics to Clinical Practice

Zohar Yosibash, Tel Aviv University
Verified and validated computational models of bones have been shown to be a valuable clinical tool in many orthopedic applications such as: Prediction of risk of fracture in femurs and vertebrae due to osteoporosis, the need for prophylactic surgeries in femurs with metastatic or benign tumors, optimizing patient specific implants, optimizing 3D printed implants and more.
The aim of this minisymposium is to present recent advances in the application of computational bone mechanics in clinical practice, difficulties and opportunities in in-vivo validation of these methods and to bring together computational bio-mechanics scientists and orthopedic surgeons.
