Many research groups are developing different techniques for non-invasive fracture healing assessment. Such a technique would aid the physician in diagnosing fracture healing problems and could be a valuable tool in research to identify the variables which affect the rate of fracture healing. This research group is using a vibration transfer function technique to follow the healing process of 11 tibial fractures in humans and determine whether any parameters can be identified which are a statistically significant measure of the structural state of a healing fracture.
