  1. Parameters: AI Amide I band, CI Crystallinity Index, M:MI Amide I + II/Hydroxyapatite (HA), M:MIII Amide III + Collagen/HA. In the rows, different capital letters indicated significant differences for radiation factor and different lower case letters indicated significant difference for experimental time interval.
