For this extensive experiment, Chen and colleagues used a range of leading-edge technologies, such as peripheral quantitative CT (computed tomography) scans, which take actual measurements of bone interior and exterior, and real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction assays (real-time RT-PCR), which enable the scientists to analyze expression (turning on) of genes that play a pivotal role in bone formation.
