ABAQUS plug-in to create virtual x-rays from 3D finite element bone/implant models

Project description

An ABAQUS plug-in to generate virtual x-rays from 3D finite element bone/implant models.

Creates a time series of virtual x-rays of a bone/implant model by projecting a scalar representing bone density onto three orthogonal planes. This is intended for post-processing of numerical bone remodelling analyses, the main objective of which typically is to detect temporal changes in the bone density around an implant and predict the long term stability of the implant in the absence of clinical data.

The resulting series of virtual x-ray images are in a format similar to clinical results making the result (1) more easily understood and accepted by clinicians and (2) able to be directly compared to clinical data, which enables validation of numerical bone remodelling algorithms.

The series of images (which are outputted in common image formats such as bmp, jpeg and png) can be analysed using BMDanalyse, which was developed for this purpose. This tool enables the quick creation of regions of interest (ROIs) over which changes in bone density over time can be determined.
