Elastic inhomogeneity in cortical bone tissue is commonly accounted for by power-law scaling relationships with apparent tissue density, mineral density, or porosity [1–4], but limited data exists for anatomic variation in elastic anisotropy . Experimental investigations of the elastic inhomogeneity and anisotropy of cortical bone tissue have typically used specimens excised from the femoral mid-diaphysis due to expediency. However, the proximal and distal ends of the diaphysis are more clinically relevant to common orthopaedic procedures and interesting mechanobiology.
