The purpose of this study was to determine if differences existed between right and left proximal femur bone mineral density (BMD) in a group of women. Participants for the study were 198 women ranging in age from 16 to 73 years. Bone mineral densities of both proximal femurs (femoral neck, Ward's area, and trochanter) were assessed using dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (Lunar DPX). Mean (±SD) age, height, and weight of the participants were 32.9±18 years, 164±7.4 cm, and 64.9±12.1 kg… CONTINUE READING
