Table 6 Healing outcomes of dogs treated with DBM mix (D1–5) and dogs treated with GM (G1–5), measured in Hounsfield units (HUs) on a PACS, using a best fit elliptical fit on the osteotomy gap on all available axial slices and presented as a mean of all measurements. The HUs increased significantly over time (p = 0.047)

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
