Resumo: The main objective of this paper was to assess the cortical bone thickness of human lumbar vertebra, through Computed Tomography (CT) images by using both image processing software and rapid prototyping (RP) experimental methodologies. The study here presented focus sixteen postmenopausal patients from the North of Portugal, with age between 50 and 85 years, collected from May to June 2011. All clinical data were obtained in a Medical Centre of Radiology and Imaging, in Porto. Results regarding cortical bone thickness and biomechanical resistance of human lumbar vertebra are presented. The acquirement of accurate values concerning cortical bone thickness could improve the prediction of fracture risk.
