The effects of dietary fatty acids on bone, hematopoietic marrow and marrow adipose tissue in a murine model of senile osteoporosis

Figure 3. Screen shots of the tagged images of the distal femora of SAMP8 mice fed fish oil supplemented (upper panel) and control (lower panel) diets. Parasagittal (A and B) and coronal/frontal (C and D) plane sections: (EJ) (yellow) dotted lines represent the cross-sectional planes that images (EJ) display. Those fed fish oil-enriched diet appear to have higher bone (blue), hematopoietic marrow (red) and lower marrow adipose tissue (green) compared to controls.
