Uptake of the respective DTBZ analogue in the cortical bone tissue. The pure cortical uptake was estimated by reducing the influence of partial volume effects due to the non-cortical bone tissue and vascular contributions. This was done by subtracting the trabecular bone uptake from the total uptake in cortical VOIs in the body of the thoracic and lumbar vertebrae in the lower spinal column.
