Structural Trends in the Aging Femoral Neck and Proximal Shaft: Analysis of the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey Dual‐Energy X‐Ray Absorptiometry Data
Hip scans of U.S. adults aged 20–99 years acquired in the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III) using dual‐energy X‐ray absorptiometry (DXA) were analyzed with aExpand

Effect of Starting Age of Physical Activity on Bone Mass in the Dominant Arm of Tennis and Squash Players
Peak bone mass is an important determinant of bone mass later in life, and an increase in peak bone mass should decrease the risk for osteoporotic fractures [1-3]. Therefore, exact identification ofExpand

Reporting whole-body vibration intervention studies: recommendations of the International Society of Musculoskeletal and Neuronal Interactions.
Whole-body vibration (WBV) is receiving increasing interest as a therapeutic modality to improve neuromuscular performance or to increase bone mass or density. In order to help improve the quality ofExpand

Dimensions and estimated mechanical characteristics of the humerus after long‐term tennis loading
This study evaluated the effects of long‐term unilateral physical activity (tennis) on the playing arm humerus. Total lengths of both humeri, site‐specific widths, and the bone mineral contents (BMC)Expand

WNT16 Influences Bone Mineral Density, Cortical Bone Thickness, Bone Strength, and Osteoporotic Fracture Risk
We aimed to identify genetic variants associated with cortical bone thickness (CBT) and bone mineral density (BMD) by performing two separate genome-wide association study (GWAS) meta-analyses forExpand

Celiac Disease Without Villous Atrophy
Current diagnostic criteria of celiac disease require small bowel villous atrophy, although the damage develops gradually. We therefore searched for evidence of disease in 10 adults suspected to haveExpand

Energy‐shunting external hip protector attenuates the peak femoral impact force below the theoretical fracture threshold: An in vitro biomechanical study under falling conditions of thel elderly
The first objective of this study was to design a hip protector that would effectively attenuate and shunt away from the greater trochanter the impact energies created in typical falls of theExpand

An open source approach for regional cortical bone mineral density analysis.
OBJECTIVE Cortical porosity, particularly at the endocortical region, is recognised to play a central role in the pathogenesis of bone fragility. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to: 1)Expand

Peripheral Quantitative Computed Tomography: Review of Evidence and Recommendations for Image Acquisition, Analysis, and Reporting, Among Individuals With Neurological Impairment.
In 2015, the International Society for Clinical Densitometry (ISCD) position statement regarding peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT) did not recommend routine use of pQCT, in clinicalExpand
