Biomechanics of fracture risk prediction of the hip and spine by quantitative computed tomography.

Abstract

In this review, we have made use of some simple engineering concepts to summarize current efforts relating QCT measures to bone density and strength. From a variety of in vitro experiments on cadaveric vertebrae and femora, it is evident that both apparent and ash densities are strong linear functions of QCT measures, with coefficients of determination… (More)
