Bone density at various sites for prediction of hip fractures. The Study of Osteoporotic Fractures Research Group.

Abstract

Women with low bone density in the radius or calcaneus are at increased risk of hip fracture. To see whether bone density of the hip measured by dual X-ray absorptiometry is a better predictor of hip fracture than measurements of other bones, we assessed bone density at several sites in 8134 women aged 65 years or more. 65 women had hip fractures during a… (More)
