OBJECTIVES We sought to identify the variance in radius bone strength indices explained by forearm muscle cross sectional area (MCSA) and isometric (ISO), concentric (CON), or eccentric (ECC) grip torque in healthy men and postmenopausal women when gender and body size were controlled for. Additionally we assessed variance in various grip contractions(More)
OBJECT The object was to assess whether cross-sectional area (CSA) and water diffusion properties of leg muscles in young and older women change with increased time spent in supine rest. MATERIALS AND METHODS Healthy young (n = 9, aged 20-30 years) and older (n = 9, aged 65-75 years) women underwent MRI scanning of the right leg at baseline, 30 and 60 min(More)
The objective of this study was to estimate the associations between muscular fat infiltration, tibia bone mineral quantity and distribution, and physical function in healthy older women. Thirty-five women (aged 60–75 years, mean 70 years) were recruited from the community. Percent intramuscular fat (%IntraMF) within the right leg tibialis anterior, soleus,(More)
