520    Fall-induced hip fracture is an epidemic health risk among
       elderly people. This book presents an image-based 
       multilevel modeling approach to understanding the 
       biomechanics involved in fall-induced hip fracture. By 
       hierarchically integrating a body-level dynamics model, a 
       femur-level finite element model, and a local bone failure
       model, the biomechanics approach is able to simulate all 
       stages in sideways falls and to incorporate all 
       biomechanical variables affecting hip fracture. This book 
       is useful for clinicians to accurately evaluate fracture 
       risk, for biomechanical engineers to virtually test hip 
       protective devices, and for biomedical students to learn 
       image-based biomechanical modeling techniques. This book 
       also covers: Biomechanical viewing on bone composition, 
       bone remodeling, and bone strength Bone imaging and 
       information captured for constructing biomechanical models
       Bone mechanical testing and mechanical properties required
       for biomechanical modeling
