Proximal femur: assessment for osteoporosis with T2* decay characteristics at MR imaging.

Abstract

PURPOSE To use T2* measurements at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging to investigate the trabecular structure of the hip in women with and women without osteoporotic hip fractures and to compare this technique with bone mineral density (BMD) measurements in the diagnosis of fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS T2* maps of the proximal femur were obtained at 1.5… (More)
