In joint replacement, failures and patient dissatisfaction continue to be reported due to non-fully anatomy-based prostheses. This can now be improved by proper prosthesis design personalization, thanks to the recent progresses in advanced additive manufacturing, subject-specific joint modelling, and, especially, in medical imaging analysis. As for the latter, a number of tools exist, both for standard and innovative computer-tomography or magnetic-resonance, whose implications within personalized joint replacement are discussed here.
