From: Early detection of steroid-induced femoral head necrosis using 99mTc-Cys-Annexin V-based apoptosis imaging in a rabbit model

Fig. 3

Histological images in bone tissues in both groups detected via H&E staining (× 400). No obvious osteonecrosis was observed in control group (a). Typical osteonecrosis of the femoral heads was observed in model group (bd). Scale bar = 100 um. The rate of empty lacunae in model group was significantly higher than that control group at each time point (e) (*compared with control group, P < 0.05. The red arrow shows the empty lacunae, and the black arrow shows the fat cells). Model group vs control group: the 2nd week (n = 9 vs 8), 4th week (n = 8 vs 8), and 6th week (n = 9 vs 8)
