Abstract:Our research is aimed at a complications of total hip implants. The components of the hip implant may be cemented into place or may be press-fit into the bone to allow the bone to grow onto the components. The uncemented hip implant is commonly used by OCON, the cemented hip implant is chosen in case the bone is too fragile or in case the shape of the bone is not suitable for a uncemented hip implant. The goal of our research is to de�ne a mathematical model which simulates ultrasonic waves through a hip and to conclude whether it is possible or not to detect a (infection) layer between the bone and hip implant with ultrasound.
