Introduction: The first clinical applications of FE-strength estimates to classify osteoporotic fractures showed inhomogeneous results. We developed a FE model that correlated well with femur strength in-vitro (R2=0.9, 14 femurs). This work aims to verify if our model can classify osteoporotic fractures in three case-control studies: a retrospective and a prospective study on proximal femur fracture, and a retrospective study on prevalent ...
