The main function of bone is to provide strength and stiffness to the musculoskeletal system. This function is most often compromised by trauma either primarily or secondary to diseases such as osteoporosis, which is a common condition of altered bone mass and micro-architecture often resulting in fractures. This relationship between bone micro-morphology and material characteristics, on the one hand, and bone strength on the other will be explored with refined imaging methods and micro finite element analysis.
