Relationship of femoral neck areal bone mineral density to volumetric bone mineral density, bone size, and femoral strength in men and women

Abstract

Using combined dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and quantitative computed tomography, we demonstrate that men matched with women for femoral neck (FN) areal bone mineral density (aBMD) have lower volumetric BMD (vBMD), higher bone cross-sectional area, and relatively similar values for finite element (FE)-derived bone strength. aBMD by DXA is widely… (More)
