Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
The first stage of this inter-disciplinary doctoral research was to scan a sample of sternal clavicles, to assess changes in the structural and mechanical properties with age, using micro-computed tomography. An image sequence was then generated using ImageJ, which shows the changes in the cross-sectional shape and proportion of cortical to trabecular bone throughout the medial third of one clavicle from the sample analysed during this investigation.
