  • We have performed computer modelling of the relationship between bone mass, age and hip fracture in a conditional probability model using a notional population of 100 000 postmenopausal women aged 50 who have their bone density measured once. The computer model very closely reproduced the actual number of fractures in a Western Australian population. Intervention to bone loss completely in subjects with the lowest bone density (below 1 SD below the mean) would prevent 0.42 of a hip fracture per… CONTINUE READING
