  1. In Patient 13, the biopsy disintegrated during transport and could not be measured. However, all dental implants have osseointegrated and are still in successful clinical function
  2. TV tissue volume, BV bone volume, BV/TV bone volumetric fraction, Tb.Sp trabecular separation, Th.Tb Trabercular thickness, SMI structural model index, DA degree of anisotropy, FD fractal dimension
