Prediction of femoral fracture load: cross-sectional study of texture analysis and geometric measurements on plain radiographs versus bone mineral density.


PURPOSE To use standard radiographs to determine which combination of co-occurrence textural parameters, geometric measurements, and cortical thickness measurements from femur radiographs provided the best estimate of femoral failure load and to compare these with total hip dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry bone mineral density (BMD) evaluation.
