(a) Bone cores were mounted in an X-ray beam line and rotated through 180°. A volume of interest (3.28 × 3.28 × 2.76 mm) was scanned at the centre of the core. (b) 640 X-Ray projections were collected at angular intervals of 0.28° and the projections were used to reconstruct 2000 axial slices with a voxel size of 1.3 μm using filtered back projection. (c) Samples were interrogated from the three planes. (d) Rendered in 3D by masking the perforations and microcracks in three planes using VGStudio MAX.
