Estimating the density of femoral head trabecular bone from hip fracture patients using computed tomography scan data.

The purpose of this study was to compare computed tomography density (ρCT ) obtained using typical clinical computed tomography scan parameters to ash density (ρash ), for the prediction of densities of femoral head trabecular bone from hip fracture patients. An experimental study was conducted to investigate the relationships between ρash and ρCT and… CONTINUE READING
