During measurements of bone mineral content with dual photon absorptiometry the external and internal diameters of the femoral shaft were determined from the attenuation curves. Measurements on aluminium cylinders demonstrated a precision error on such determinations of 2-3%. Repeated determinations of the external and internal diameter on the femoral shaft in vivo showed an average difference between two measurements of 2.1 and 4.2%, respectively. Determinations on the femoral shaft in vivo of… CONTINUE READING
