Bone geometry is commonly measured on computed tomographic (CT) and X-ray
microtomographic (μCT) images. We obtained hundreds of CT, μCT and synchrotron
μCT images of bones from diverse species that needed to be analysed remote from
scanning hardware, but found that available software solutions were expensive,
inflexible or methodologically opaque. We implemented standard bone measurements
in a novel ImageJ plugin, BoneJ, with which we analysed trabecular bone, whole
bones and osteocyte lacunae. BoneJ is open source and free for anyone to
download, use, modify and distribute.
