This work deals with the mutual action of hydrocortisone and low intensity microwave radiation (MWR) on the bone tissue of rats.

The bone density and velocity of ultrasound was measured in order to evaluate the Young's modulus of the femur.

The results show a stimulating effect of the low-intensity MWR field on regeneration of the bone tissue of rats. The MWR, during a long application of hydrocortisone, may be a characteristic protective factor for the bone tissue.
