Review Core Concepts And Issues
Use this impressive didactic model for comparing osteoporotic and normal thoracic vertebrae. It is ideal for medical studies showing the 11th and 12th thoracic vertebrae for clear visualization of the fractured upper part of the vertebral body caused by osteoporosis. Degenerative changes in the bone, manifested as osteophytes, are also identifiable. The magnetically attached vertebral half can be removed easily to show the cut surfaces. For comparison, reproductions of two corresponding healthy vertebrae with intervertebral disc are provided.
