Effects of SML on the structural characteristics of cortical bone. a Three-dimensional micro-CT images of cortical bone after 12 weeks in OVX mice. The cortical bone parameters were measured by a three-dimensional micro-CT analysis program. The measured cortical bone parameters were b bone volume density (BV, mm3), c mean polar moment of inertia (MMI, mm4), d cross-section thickness (Cs.Th, mm), and e bone mineral density (BMD, g/cm3). Values are given as the mean ± S.E.M. of three independent experiments (n = 7) for all groups. Means unlike letters in a column with differ significantly (p < 0.05)
