Effects of SML on the mechanical characteristics of trabecular bone. a Three-dimensional micro-CT images of trabecular bone after 12 weeks in OVX mice. The trabecular bone parameters were monitored by a three-dimensional micro-CT analysis program. The measured trabecular bone parameters were b bone volume fraction (BV/TV), c trabecular thickness (Tb.Th), d trabecular separation (Tb.Sp), e trabecular number (Tb.N), f trabecular bone pattern factor (Tb.Pf), g specific bone surface (BS/BV), h structure model index (SMI), and i bone mineral density (BMD). Values are given as 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)
