Table 2 Parameters used for the description of cortical and trabecular bone

From: Growth factor-mediated augmentation of long bones: evaluation of a BMP-7 loaded thermoresponsive hydrogel in a murine femoral intramedullary injection model

Characteristics of cortical bone
 BAr/TAr, % bone area / tissue area
 CtTh, mm cortical thickness
 CtBMD, g/cm3 cortical bone mineral density
Characteristics of trabecular bone
 BV/TV, % bone volume fraction
 TbN, 1/mm trabecular number
 TbTh, mm trabecular thickness
 TbSp, mm trabecluar separation
 DA degree of aniostropy
 TbBMD, g/cm3 trabecular bone mineral density
