In vivo diffuse damage in human vertebral trabecular bone.

Abstract

Accumulation of microdamage in vivo may lead to loss of bone quality. Until recently, linear microcracks were the only known form of in vivo microdamage, but through the use of confocal microscopy an additional level of damage (diffuse damage) has been identified. In this study, in vivo diffuse damage was characterized and quantified in human vertebral… (More)
