Table 3 Presented are the healing outcomes of dogs treated with DBM (D1–5) and dogs treated with GM (G1–5), based on scores (0–4) on lateral radiographs, as previously described by Hoffman et al. [0 = no bone healing in any area; 1 = early bone healing, no bridging between the tibial tuberosity and tibial diaphysis; 2 = bridging bone at one site; 3 = bridging bone at two sites; 4 = bridging bone at 3 sites (proximal to the cage, between cage and plate, distal to the plate)] [4]. No significant differences were found between treatment groups at any time point or over time

From: Comparison of three imaging modalities used to evaluate bone healing after tibial tuberosity advancement in cranial cruciate ligament-deficient dogs and comparison of the effect of a gelatinous matrix and a demineralized bone matrix mix on bone healing – a pilot study
