Apparent bone area and trabeculea thickness at the quadriceps tendon enthesis. (A) Apparent bone area in the lateral (BAL), central (BAC) and medial (BAM) patella facets expressed as a percentage of the total tissue volume (mean values ± SD). Significant differences (P < 0.05) are underlined. Values are significantly higher centrally and laterally than medially. (B) Trabeculae thickness in the lateral (THL), central (THC) and medial (THM) patella facets expressed as a percentage of the total tissue volume (mean values ± SD). Significant differences (P < 0.05) are underlined. Values are significantly higher centrally and laterally than medially.
