  • Hans-Georg Knoch

Abstract

Callus comprises the intermediate stage in the healing of a fracture toward soundness. The detection of healthy callus tissue in a fracture treated with ultrasound forms the basis for proving the stimulatory efect of ultrasound. To furnish this proof, the following investigations were performed:
  • Radiographic studies

  • Strength tests

  • Histologic studies, scanning electron microscopy

  • Bone scintigraphy

  • Angiographic studies

  • Biochemical studies

  • Total mineral analysis

  • Sequential polychrome labeling

  • Temperature measurements

  • Summary of findings
