Illustration osteoporosis

Illustrations of the alteration of the bone structure of the spongiosa by osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis is a progressive disease of the bone in which bone mass and density decrease, making it brittle and prone to fracture

The illustration shows a comparison of healthy bone structure (left) and a bone structure in osteoporosis (right). This is shown using a sectional view of the femur and hip as an example. A close-up view illustrates the changes in the structure of the bones in more detail.
