Paper Abstract

Atomic force microscopy (AFM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) have been used to quantify bone morphology during post-injury ossification in rate tibiae and characterize the differences induced by laser photostimulation compared with the naturally-occurring regenerative process. SEM and AFM images of the cortical bone at the recovery stages of 8 and 15 days after the injury are discussed.
