Determination of bone mass is currently the most clinically useful measurement of bone strength and of fracture risk. Interpretation of bone mass determination as it relates to fracture has been developed largely from studies of age-related bone loss. A decrease in bone mass and an increase in fracture incidence with aging are universal phenomena that are… CONTINUE READING
