Osteocytes are believed to be the primary agents of mechanosensing in bone. Due to this important role in the structure-function relationship of bone, osteocytes and the spaces they occupy (lacunae) are of increasing interest. Changes in lacunae with age are of particular interest in women since they are more susceptible to bone loss and fragility associated with senescent diseases including osteoporosis. This study's purpose was to test whether differences exist in lacunar density (lacunae/mm… CONTINUE READING
