An analysis of trabecular bone texture based on fractal mathematics, when applied to trabecular bone images on plain radiographs, can be considered as a reflection of trabecular bone microarchitecture. It has been shown to be able to distinguish postmenopausal osteoporosis cases from controls. This cross-sectional study was carried out to investigate the influence of age, time since menopause and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) on the fractal dimension of trabecular bone texture at the… CONTINUE READING
