Quentin Grimal


Sorbonne University, France

Quentin leads the research team “BONE MECHANICAL QUALITY AND ULTRASOUND CHARACTERIZATION” (BQ), which is part of the Laboratory of Biomedical Imaging at Sorbonne University, France. His research builds on the strong expertise that the laboratory has developped for the measurement of bone mechanical properties with ultrasound in vivo and ex vivo. Quenting is also committed to develop Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy (RUS ) to measure the anisotropic elasticity tensor and viscoelasticity tensor of bone specimens and other materials.


  • Wave propagation physics
  • Modeling and simulation in biological tissues, and in particular bones
  • Mechanical properties of hard biological tissues (bone, teeth), including the relationships between mechanical properties and the composition and microanatomy of tissues
  • Pathological alterations of the composition and microanatomy of hard tissues at different scales and their consequences on elasticity and strength
  • Stability of orthopaedic implants
  • Relationships between bone quality assessed with ultrasound or X-ray methods and implant stability
