The temporal and spatial fluctuations in the dynamics of secondary osteonal remodeling impart heterogeneity to the compositional quality of bone. Bone mineral density (BMD) fails to reflect this heterogeneity as being a single score, and thus it cannot resolve the overlap between healthy individuals and those who experience fractures. Such information on tissue heterogeneity is lacking in the literature. In the current study, specimens were prepared from mid-diaphyseal portions of human femora… CONTINUE READING
