The correlation of pore morphology, interconnectivity and physical properties of 3D ceramic scaffolds with bone ingrowth

Jones, Anthony; Arns, Christoph; Hutmacher, Dietmar W; Milthorpe, Bruce; Sheppard, Adrian; Knackstedt, Mark


In the design of tissue engineering scaffolds, design parameters including pore size, shape and interconnectivity, mechanical properties and transport properties should be optimized to maximize successful inducement of bone ingrowth. In this paper we describe a 3D micro-CT and pore partitioning study to derive pore scale parameters including pore radius distribution, accessible radius, throat radius, and connectivity over the pore space of the tissue engineered constructs. These pore scale...[Show more]
