The mechanical behavior of bone is a critical factor in the attainment and maintenance of osseointegration. Current procedures and classifications in assessing bone quality have limitations. Micro-computed tomography (microCT) is a new method to image and quantify bone with very high resolution. This study was aimed to analyze cadaveric maxillary and mandibular trabecular bone with 3-D morphometric data acquired through microCT and correlate with conventional bone assessment methods.
