The measurement of the electrical resistance of bone is generally done by using an externally placed electrical generator connected with bone. The proposed in vivo method does not require an electrical generator connected to bone because it is based on the assumption that bone itself is an electrical generator. The technique is believed to give accurate values for bone resistance because it introduces minimal disturbing factors in the natural biological system.
