- Osteoporosis induced bone fracture is not limited to simple damage according to its fractured region and the age of the damaged person. Therefore, there has been more necessity to understand and study the biomechanical aspects of osteoporosis, and relevant research has actively been conducted. With the development of medical imaging technology, the reconstruction of CT images into a 3D model has been made possible, and it has been conducted to analyze 3-dimensionally and inhomogeneously distributed bone mineral density according to CT values. The 3D bone strength computational analysis based on 2D bone images utilized for evaluating the new treatment using the mixture of PLGA and curcumin for rat osteoporosis model. After the treatment, bone mineral density recovered by 65% compared to the osteoporosis model, moreover, bone strength improved by 113%. This study suggested that the limitations of conventional bone monitoring method using 2D bone images can be overcome by considering 3D bone computational analysis. It is considered that introducing the newly proposed Deformation Per Volume (DPW) and Stress Per Weight (SPW) can be also used as effective parameters to more accurately predict the change in bone stiffness.
