The aim of the study was to evaluate the accuracy of an XCT 960 Stratec peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT) device in assessing bone mineral content of the radius. We scanned 27 left forearm specimens excised from cadavers and focused on cortical bone mineral content (BMCc) at the junction of the middle and distal third and on total bone mineral content (BMCtot) at the distal end of the radius. Cylindrical specimens matched with those two sites were cut using a diamond circular… CONTINUE READING
