CAD-BONE will combine image processing, musculoskeletal modelling tools, finite element analyses and bone remodelling/healing algorithms to provide an understanding of the individual functional outcome of patient treatments from standard clinical radiographs. Although already developed and broadly in use, these computer technologies and methods are yet to be combined and integrated to create a computer tool with a predictive purpose. To successfully achieve this objective different scientific and technological challenges will be faced.

Therefore, we expect that CAD-BONE can lead to a preliminary tool for the prediction of bone morphological changes resulting from changes in mechanical loading conditions.
