X-ray diffraction is a relatively easy method to analyze the crystalline composition of solids, useful in bone crystalline composition determination. We demonstrate the presence of hydroxyapatite crystals existing in normal skeletal bone in all 6 heterotopic ossification samples analyzed by means of X-ray powder diffraction technique. The phenomenon of heterotopic ossification mineralization seems to be similar to that of normal skeletal bone mineralization.
