INTRODUCTION: One goal of reducing fracture risk is to maintain bone stiffness and strength with aging despite a net loss in bone mass. It is well recognized that age-related bone loss is often accompanied by continued periosteal apposition [1]. Because variation in the amount of periosteal expansion may be a major contributor to fracture risk [2], having a… (More)
