Quantitative genetic study of radiographic hand bone size and geometry.

Abstract

Despite the obvious epidemiological significance of bone size (BS) and geometry (BG) traits as risk factors for osteoporotic fracture, very little is still known concerning the extent of their genetic determination. In the present paper we report the results of quantitative genetic analysis of a number of BG and BS indices, as well as of BMD measurements… (More)
