The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the accuracy of peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT) in measuring the thickness of the radial cortex. Thirty left forearm specimens were scanned on an XCT 960 Stratec pQCT device using a 2.5 mm thick slice at the junction of the middle and the distal third of the radius. Cortical and trabecular(More)
Our aim was to evaluate the role of cortical bone in resistance to compression in the human radius. Thirty-three left cadaver forearms were scanned on an XCT 960 Stratec CT scanner. Cortical density and cortical thickness were measured at the junction of the middle and distal third of the radius. Subsequently, 2-cm-high cylindrical specimens, centrated on(More)
