Vertebral trabecular mineral content and peripheral cortical bone mineral were measured in 94 female and 44 male osteoporotic patients and compared to vertebral mineral values obtained for 323 control subjects in a cross-sectional study. The rate of change of spinal trabecular mineral with age (measured by quantitative computed tomography) in control females averaged 1.2% per year from age 20 to 80, with an accelerated loss demonstrated at the menopause. Trabecular bone mass in male controls… CONTINUE READING
