Figure 3: (a) Overlapped three-dimensional image of superior articular facet of axis with the black line marking the bony surface of facet and the red line showing the surface of cartilage with the green markers at places depicting the thickness of the cartilage at various levels. (b) Three-dimensional images with and without the cartilage overlapped and analyzed using color mapping toll resulting in different colors depicting the thickness at various points. The increasing intensity of red depicts increasing convexity of the joint surface (scale attached). This shows a convex articular surface with cartilage in situ
