Bone quality in prehistoric, Cis-Baikal forager femora: a micro-CT analysis of cortical canal microstructure.

Abstract

Bone quality, a contributor to bone strength, is determined by structural and mechanical properties, which may be analyzed by gross and/or microscopic methods. Variables that contribute to bone quality, such as porosity, can provide insight into the health and lifestyles of people in prehistory. This study tests the ability of microcomputed tomography (µCT… (More)
