The paper "A Novel Videography Method for Generating Crack-Extension Resistance Curves in Small Bone Samples" had been published in PLOS ONE.

The assessment of fracture toughness in small bone samples poses difficulties in tracking the crack tip due to its size. This new technique proposes to track the whitening or diffuse damage that can be observed on the surface of bone as is fractures. The work has now been presented in PLOS ONE (Public Library of Science), a peer-reviewed, open access journal. The technique will be one of those used for assessing bone fragility in the small scale OStEO samples.
