Figure 4: (a) A longitudinal section of cortical bone tissue of the middle shaft of the femur of an ovariectomized rat treated with estrogen synthetic compound showing decrease in thickness in the shaft as compared with sham-operated rats; resorption cavities are still present (arrows) and an increase in the number of osteocytes is evident. (b) A section of trabecular bone of the same group showing mild increase in trabecular thickness as compared with the ovariectomized group. Hematoxylin and eosin-stained section, (a) ×200 and (b) ×400
