The effects of high-dose irradiation on the morphology of haversian bone were studied, over a fifty-two-week period, in seventy-seven adult rabbits, after the administration of a single dose of radiation (therapeutic x-ray; twenty-five, fifty, or 100 gray) to one knee joint. The specimens of bone were examined with microangiography, light and transmission electron microscopy, and histomorphometry. Analysis was performed on the haversian bone in the subchondral bone plate of weight-bearing… CONTINUE READING
