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) demonstrate how cortical volumetric BMD (vBMD) distribution can be analysed from (p)QCT images and 2) highlight the clinical significance of assessing regional density distribution of cortical bone. METHODS We used pQCT to compare mid-tibial cortical volumetric BMD distribution of 20 young (age 24(SD2… CONTINUE READING
