Application of a model based on dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry and finite element simulation for predicting the probability of osteoporotic hip fractures to a sample of people over 60 years.

Abstract

The aim of this work is the application of a mechanical predictive model to a sample of people over 60 years of age, in order to analyze the fracture probability related to age and sex. A total of 223 elderly people (63 men, aged 63-88, 72.32±6.10; 157 women, aged 61-89, 73.28±5.73) participated in the study. A dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry scanner was… (More)
