Fig. (2) Histologic sample. In measurement of histologic parameters, areas with artifact subtracted from the measures. All the measurements were extracted with the Image J software. In non homogeneous structures the average of data was reported. Cortical plate was defined as the distance from top of the sample to the last distinguishable haversian canal. In all samples, the number and thickness of haversian canals in the cortical bone, bone volume density/ Trabecular bone volume, and trabecular thickness, number and distance was measured.
