Figure 6: (a) A longitudinal section of the middle shaft of the femur of an ovariectomized rat fed fennel showing nonuniform increase in thickness of the cortical bone with mild reduction in the area of Haversian canals. Irregularity of endosteal surface was observed. (b) A section of trabecular bone of the same group showing moderate increase in trabecular areas and calcified cartilage (arrow). (a) Binary image morphometric measurement; (b) hematoxylin and eosin-stained section; ×400
