The relationship of bone properties using high resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography to radiographic components of hip osteoarthritis.

To date, these associations have not been assessed using HRpQCT. DESIGN A total of 318 participants (170 men and 148 women), aged 72.1-81.4 years from a non… CONTINUE READING
