In the paper, a method for the direct image-based creation of the finite element model from images is presented. Image information is taken into account during the calculation of the element stiffness matrix. In this case, material heterogeneity can be included directly in the finite element model. For this purpose, the hypothesis about the correlation between pixel values and elastic properties was used. Four nodes plane element was built. The element can be used with the quantitative phase or scanning electron images and computed tomography data. Simulation for bone data performed. The influence of pixel on the error estimate was studied. The method to parallelize the calculation of the stiffness matrix is presented. As an example, a slice of bone was used in the calculation. Results for average stress distribution for the origin and improved mesh are presented.
