Tomographic determination of BMD scanned by pQCT (3.0 mm & 12.0 mm down to the epiphyseal line of proximal tibia). The scale bar of BMD is from 0 to over 1000 shown at the left with color variation from black, gray, red, blue,…to white. In Fig.
a, there was evidently higher intensity component with red and blue signal values in the cancellous bone area in group BDD comparing to OVX, which was mostly in gray; however, the BMD of cortical bone didn’t show any notable difference in fig. 4-b.
