Hi! I’m hoping someone can help. I am researching trabeculae in pelican beaks. The beak is made from bone, albeit of varying mineral densities but I’m wondering if maybe it’s not suitable for analysis in BoneJ for some reason, as I’ve not been able to obtain the results I’m after. I’ve attached some photos showing one of the sections in Amira, and one of just the trabeculae. The file is 8-bit binary exported from Amira. I’ve tried doing ITA in BoneJ on a section I’ve segmented containing just trabeculae but got a few hundred angles when there are significantly fewer (less than 50) trabeculae. Am I doing something wrong, or not reading the results correctly?
I also tried doing a thickness analysis on the trabeculae, but just got a ‘NaN’ result. What could the reason for this be? I’m guessing I’m not doing something right or the model isn’t suitable.
Also when doing Degree of Anisotropy, should I be using a model that includes the cortical and the trabeculae, or one that just has trabeculae?
