Minimum thickness

I am currently developing a project with bone properties of the wing bones in birds. I need to calculate torsional resistance for the cross sections of the bones, however I need to do it using the non-circular shapes formula. In this regard, I first need to calculate the minimum thickness of each cross section.

I was wondering if is there a way in BoneJ in which I can find out the minimum thickness.

Thanks in advance

Do you mean the minimum thickness of the cortical bone? If so, then use the 2D and/or 3D thickness options to calculate thickness of the cortex, then get the minimum value by running Analyze > Measure (you may have to ‘Set Measurements’ first).
