The accuracy of a radiographic absorptiometry (RA) technique called digital image processing (DIP), discriminative ability of RA for osteoporotic fracture, and the relationship between RA and dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) of the spine and forearm were evaluated. We measured 16 cadaver hands, 32 healthy non-black premenopausal women, 39 healthy non-black(More)
