A comprehensive evaluation of a rapid decalcification method for bones: A histological analysis

Bogoevski, Kristofor (2016) A comprehensive evaluation of a rapid decalcification method for bones: A histological analysis. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This project's goal was to quicken the time of a bone processing method called histology for both research and clinical investigations. The following thesis examined various acid solutions at different temperatures in order to achieve faster results without compromising the quality of the analysed tissues of various species. Outcome measures such as radiological and microscopic evaluations demonstrated that equivalent results can be obtained by using rapid bone processing techniques compared to the gold standard method of EDTA.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
