TITLE: “Human tibia implanted with titanium press-fit tray: a micro-CT zero-strain analysis with digital volume correlation”,

The study is a zero-strain error analysis using digital volume correlation (DVC), for four plausible micro-CT scanning configurations, of a human cadaveric tibia implanted with a cementless titanium tibial tray. The study assessed the feasibility of using a shorter scan time and the presence of an aluminium cylinder, both required for mechanical loading while scanning, and how this analysis can be extended for organ-level analysis.
