Data used in the paper : "Bone remodelling in the mouse tibia is spatio-temporally modulated by oestrogen deficiency and external mechanical loading: a combined in vivo/ in silico study"

We share here an example of in vivo microCT images collected for a mouse that underwent the following interventions:
-ovariectomy at week 14 of age
- mechanical loading at week 19 and 21 of age.
- injections of Parathyroid hormone (PTH; 5 days per week) between weeks 18 and 22 of age

In vivo 3D microCT images of the mouse tibia have been acquired at week 14, 18, 20, and 22 of age.
The registered and cropped images are reported here.
