Monte Carlo simulation has been conducted to explore the possibilities of triple photon energy absorptiometry (TPA) in the measurement of bone mineral content. The purpose of this technique is to correct the measured bone mineral density for fat and soft tissues. The same simulations have been done for a dual photon energy absorptiometry (DPA) system and an extended DPA system. The simulation results showed that the TPA system has not enough accuracy to be considered as an adequate method for… CONTINUE READING
