Table 3 The experimental group showed a statistically significant increase in mean value of the total number osteocytes (Ost) relative to the control group in all regions of interest (ROIs: l1, l2, and central): 1ateral 1: B_Ost_l1 = 247.70 osteocytes, A_Ost_l1= 87.88 osteocytes (P = 0.000 < < 0.001) 1ateral 2: B_Ost_l2 = 465.82 osteocytes, A_Ost_l2 = 165.97 osteocytes (P = 0.000 < < 0.001) Central: B_Ost_Central = 39.32 osteocytes, A_Ost_Central = 10.20 osteocytes (P = 0.040)
