Cortical bone in the human femoral neck: three-dimensional appearance and porosity using synchrotron radiation.


UNLABELLED A high-resolution CT system using synchrotron radiation allowed visualization of the 3D cortical bone microarchitecture and measurement of intracortical porosity of femoral neck cortical bone specimens from 19 female cadavers imaged at 10.13-microm resolution. 3D reconstruction of specimens showed osteonal system arrangement. Mean porosity was 15… (More)
