Competing Interests

I have read the journal's policy and the authors of this manuscript have the following competing interests: GI and KR have the patent "CortBS: Ultrasonic method for determining pore dimensions in cortical bone" pending. JB reports grants and personal fees from Eli Lilly, Amgen and Will Pharma, outside the submitted work. This does not alter our adherence to PLOS ONE policies on sharing data and materials.
