Structure and properties of clinical coralline implants measured via 3D imaging and analysis

Knackstedt, Mark; Arns, Christoph; Senden, Timothy; Gross, Karlis


The development and design of advanced porous materials for biomedical applications requires a thorough understanding of how material structure impacts on mechanical and transport properties. This paper illustrates a 3D imaging and analysis study of two clinically proven coral bone graft samples (Porites and Goniopora). Images are obtained from X-ray micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) at a resolution of 16.8 μm. A visual comparison of the two images shows very different structure; Porites has...[Show more]
