Impacts of Dual in vivo Axial Compressive Tibial and Ulnar Loading

The impacts of dual in vivo compressive axial tibial and ulnar loading were explored throughout my project. This was done by loading the left ulna and right tibia of multiple age groups and both sexes of C57BL/6J mice 3 times a week for 4 weeks. The results of this loading were then explored by microcomputer tomography analysis to analyze cortical properties of both the loaded and unloaded tibias and ulnas of these animals.
