Bone density was measured in 31 white women with hip fractures by single- and dual-photon absorptiometry at the radius, lumbar spine and proximal femur. The mean age was 71.4 years. Comparison with premenopausal normals revealed Z-scores as follows: radius, −1.75; spine, −1.45; femoral neck, −2.40; Ward's triangle, −2.41; and trochanter, −1.42. These values altered when calculated for the patient's age by the use of sex-and race-specific regressions against age in a healthy, non-fracture… CONTINUE READING
