An assessment of the role of marrow fat as a source of error in single energy quantitative CT (SEQCT) measurements of the spine is presented. Fat-induced shifts and spreads in SEQCT findings are discriminated and quantified. Studies using chemical analysis have reported an average vertebral bone mineral (MIN) loss of approximately 1.3 mg/ml (0.9%) per year from a peak MIN of 150 mg/ml at age 30 years with a standard error of the estimate (SEE) of approximately 23 mg/ml [coefficient of variation… CONTINUE READING
