Database of femur samples



The dataset includes a database of human proximal femora:

The database was built in the course of VPHOP or the Osteoporotic Virtual Physiological Human project ( This data collection is accessible and open to use in the research projects upon proper referencing to the published papers and the database itself.

A total of 33 human cadaver femora were collected. The mean age of the donors was 77.8±10.0 years (range 61-95 years), 17 donors were female and 16 donors were male.

Each entry in the database contains the finite element model input file in ANSYS format (*.cdb files), a tabular file containing microstructural parameters measured at the location of each element (*.dat) and the reconstructed microCT images of the sample (*.aim). Additional files for each sample such as microCT images and the different masks can be provided upon request.
