We aimed to discuss the risk assessments of patients with hip fractures due to the fall-related moderate or minimal trauma and compare them with non-fractured control patients by bone mineral density (BMD) and proximal femur geometric measurements to assess whether geometric measurements of femoral dimensions were associated with femoral strength and hip… CONTINUE READING
