Abstract

The topological similarity of sponge-like bicontinuous morphologies differing in length scale was studied. The direct 3D visualization of spatially complex morphologies by real-space imaging methods was discussed. It was found that if the polymer possesses a sponge-like morphology of specific length scale and classification, it may expedite bone regeneration through directed growth.
