New medical input technologies together with computer
graphics modelling and visualization software have opened a new track
for biomedical sciences: the so-called in-silice experimentation, in
which analysis and measurements are done on computer graphics models
constructed on the basis of medical images, complementing the
traditional in-vivo and in-vitro experimental methods. In this paper,
we describe an in-silice experiment to evaluate bio-implants for bone
regeneration: data capture and graphical algorithms. The results show that computer graphics models
can give similar measurements than the traditional
methods using the same precision with additional advantages such as the
capability of choosing the best, or even several, plane orientations to do the
study. There are also the intrinsic advantages of animal sacrifices
reduction and sample preservation.
