High-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography measures 3-dimensional bone micro-architecture at the distal radius and tibia, and provides new insight issues of bone quality in patients. The typical measurement region of interest (ROI) with an axial dimension of 9.02 mm is positioned at a fixed distance from landmarks at the distal end of the radius or tibia, but little is known about the variation of bone architecture in the vicinity of this region and related sensitivity to… CONTINUE READING
