How Analyze was Used
“To investigate the effects of ATO on the three-dimensional (3D) bone structure, we conducted an assay using microcomputed tomography (micro-CT) imaging (Quantum GX, Perkin Elmer, Waltham, USA). Mice were scanned and reconstructed into a 3D structure via micro-CT imaging 39 days after the initial collagen injection. The voxel size was 72 μm, the X-ray tube voltage was 90 KV, the current was 88 μA, and the exposure time was 4 min. Mean CT values of the hind paws were calculated with Caliper Analyze software (Analyze Direct, Kansas, USA) to assess bone loss.”
