A personalized 3D model of the proximal femur is reconstructed from medical CT-scan images. The mechanical properties of the cortical and spongious bones are extracted from the medical images. A finite element model of a personalized total hip arthroplasty is developed to investigate the effect of residual stresses due to cement curing in the load transfer during simplified heel strike.
