Micro-computed tomography of fatigue microdamage in cortical bone using a barium sulfate contrast agent.

Abstract

Accumulation of microdamage during fatigue can lead to increased fracture susceptibility in bone. Current techniques for imaging microdamage in bone are inherently destructive and two-dimensional. Therefore, the objective of this study was to image the accumulation of fatigue microdamage in cortical bone using micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) with a… (More)
