High resolution MR imaging of the calcaneus: Age related changes in trabecular structure and comparison with DXA measurements

Abstract

High resolution MR imaging of calcanei was performed on 22 healthy women to examine age-related changes in trabecular structures. Global calcaneal BMD values were also obtained by DXA (Hologic QDR-2000). The MR images were acquired on a 1.5T GE Signa imager using a 3D gradient echo sequence (TE/TR/tx= l lms/35ms/30~ 28 sagittal slices were obtained (slice… (More)
