PhD thesis defense Yvan Gugler

The ARTORG Center congratulates Yvan Gugler for his successful PhD thesis defense on 23 April 2024. As part of the Musculoskeletal Biomechanics lab, he investigated the results of three studies that assessed the potential of 3D DXA for use in the clinic under the title "Evaluation of 3D DXA Reconstructions of the Proximal Femur for FE-Based Strength and Fracture Risk Predictions.
