The purpose of this study is to analyze the roles of two non-invasive techniques, bone scintigraphy and resonance frequency analysis (RFA), in the osseointegration assessment. Sixty implants with sandblasted/acid-etched (SA) or machined (MA) surface were placed into the distal femur condyles of 30 rabbits. At 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 12 weeks postsurgery, they… CONTINUE READING
