  journal={Nature Reviews Rheumatology},
With recent advances in molecular medicine and disease treatment in osteoporosis, quantitative image processing of three-dimensional bone structures is critical in the context of bone quality assessment. Biomedical imaging technology such as MRI or CT is readily available, but few attempts have been made to expand the capabilities of these systems by integrating quantitative analysis tools and by exploring structure–function relationships in a hierarchical fashion. Nevertheless, such… CONTINUE READING
