Description of the technology
A better understanding of functional changes in the intervertebral disc and interaction with endplate is essential to elucidate the pathogenesis of intervertebral disc degeneration disease. To date, the simultaneous depiction of 3D
The technology is aimed to characterize the 3D morphology changes of endplate and the intervertebral disc during aging using propagation phase contrast synchrotron
This technology, using propagation phase contrast synchrotron
The technology can be used both in experimental studies of the aging processes in the musculoskeletal system and as a diagnostic method in clinical practice.
