To warrant an individual
modelling for each patient, radiological image data especially computed
tomography data (CT-Data) are used to get a computer-modells of the
bone-structures. That way CAD (Computer Aided Design) Models as well as
FE (Finite Element) Models, which are necessary for the simulation, are
generated. Concerning the FE-Modelling, the CT-Data do not only supply
the bone-geometry. Furthermore essential information about the local
stiffness distribution inside the bones is provided.
