The broad objective of this work is to have a better understanding of geometrical changes associated with osteoporotic bones and emerging techniques to repair the fractured bone by the use of medical cements. This methodological study focuses on combining high-resolution MRI together with advanced methods of image analysis, which is a 3D Fuzzy Distance Transform, for the assessment of the key geometrical features of bone. We report on the thickness distribution of a complete vertebra.
