High-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) is a newly developed in vivo clinical imaging modality. It can assess the 3D microstructure of cortical and trabecular bone at the distal radius and tibia and is suitable as an input for microstructural finite element (microFE) analysis to evaluate bone's mechanical competence. In order(More)
Micro magnetic resonance imaging (µMRI) is an in vivo imaging method that permits 3D quantification of cortical and trabecular bone microstructure. µMR images can also be used for building microstructural finite element (µFE) models to assess bone stiffness, which highly correlates with bone's resistance to fractures. In order for µMRI-based microstructural(More)
Accurate bone mineral density (BMD) quantification is critical in clinical assessment of fracture risk and in the research of age-, disease-, and treatment-related musculoskeletal changes. The development of high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) imaging has made possible in vivo assessment of compartmental volumetric BMD(More)
