Database of femur samples
datasetposted on 07.12.2013 by Javad Hazrati-Marangalou
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The dataset includes a database of human proximal femora: The database was built in the course of VPHOP or the Osteoporotic Virtual Physiological Human project (http://www.vphop.eu/). This data collection is accessible and open to use in the research projects upon proper referencing to the published papers and the database itself. A total of 33 human cadaver femora were collected. The mean age of the donors was 77.8±10.0 years (range 61-95 years), 17 donors were female and 16 donors were male. Each entry in the database contains the finite element model input file in ANSYS format (*.cdb files), a tabular file containing microstructural parameters measured at the location of each element (*.dat) and the reconstructed microCT images of the sample (*.aim). Additional files for each sample such as microCT images and the different masks can be provided upon request.
