The research group of Verdonschot is focusing on the biomechanical analysis of the musculoskeletal system. Using imaging techniques (CT and MRI) patients can be reconstructed within the computer. Subsequently, various issues in patients can be assessed. Questions which are assessed concern: How high is the loading on the cartilage for a specific patient? Is the patient able to walk after removal of muscle tissue due to tumour surgery? Will the bone fracture due to osteoporosis? Will a new type of prosthetic implant last longer than an older type? How can we best reconstruct a torn anterior cruciate ligament?
