Abstract

The evaluation of both qualitative and quantitative osteointegration is essential to determine bone scaffolds ability to repair defects and its real biofunctionality. Bone densitometry is considered as a good tool for noninvasively monitoring of healing process. In literature, there are few works about bone density differences between human and most employed animal models, and also on differences between animals with various skeletal development. The aim of this study was to collect normal bone mineral density (BMD) values about tibia in different animal models, because tibia was regarded as the most common experimental implant site.
