Figure 1: Longitudinal sections of the middle shaft of femur of (a) a shamoperated rat shows an oute fi brous layer, periosteum (arrow), and an inner layer facing the marrow cavity, endosteum (arrowhead). (b) The same group shows normal cortical width of the shaft. (c) A sham-operated rat showing normal osteocytes and Haversian canals. (d) The head of the femur of a sham-operated rat showing normal architecture of the trabeculae of the inner cancellous bone and bone marrow spaces. (a) Hematoxylin and eosin-stained section; (b– d binary image morphometric measurement; ×400
