We report on responses of hydrated and dehydrated cortical bone tissues to mechanical loading applied by a Vickers indenter. The Vickers indentations were imaged in two- and three-dimensions (2D and 3D) using confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) to understand mechanical behavior of bone tissues. Serial optical sections of indentation patterns of dry and wet bones were collected using CLSM. The indention surface structures were mapped using topographical CLSM imaging. The observation of...[Show more]
