OBJECTIVE To investigate the healing effects of diagnostic ultrasound in a standardized rat femur fracture model. METHODS Thirty-two male rats aged 14 weeks were used, and each rat's right femur was osteotomized and stabilized under anesthesia. The rats were then divided into 4 groups. Five days after surgery, ultrasound was applied every fifth day with diagnostic sonographic equipment and a probe with a 7.5-MHz frequency and 11.8-mW/cm2 total output intensity for 10 minutes in each session… CONTINUE READING
