Abstract

Abstract The way in which bone is processed may affect the quality of the specimen and how much information may be gleaned on histological examination. We investigated eight widely used rasps and drills and compared the results. All large chip cutters damaged the bed and marrow of the bone. The tool that caused the least damage was the wet grinding diamond tool.
