    Orthopedic Research Lab, University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    Spine (Phila Pa 1976) 26:1555-61. 2001
    ..Our finite-element models indicated that osteoporosis had a significant effect on the amount of trabecular bone at risk of fracture, which increased from about 1% in healthy vertebrae to about 16% for osteoporotic vertebrae...

    J Homminga
    Department of Biomedical Engineering, Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands
    Bone 34:510-6. 2004
    ..If future clinical imaging techniques would enable such high-resolution images to be obtained in vivo, the combination of microCT and microFEA would produce a powerful tool to diagnose osteoporosis...

    J Homminga
    Orthopedic Research Laboratory, University of Nijmegen, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
    Bone 30:759-64. 2002
    ..We conclude that individuals with a history of osteoporotic fractures do not have weaker bone tissue. Architectural and mechanical anisotropy alone renders their bone weaker in the nonprimary loading direction...

    J C van der Linden
    Department of Orthopedics, Erasmus University Medical Center Rotterdam, The Netherlands
    J Bone Miner Res 16:457-65. 2001
    ..Strains in trabeculae surrounding a cavity increased by up to 1,000 microstrains, which could lead to bone apposition. These results give insight in the mechanical effects of bone remodeling and resorption at trabecular level...
