Bone tissue and geometry are constantly modified through modeling and remodeling at the periosteal, endosteal and intracortical envelopes. Results from several studies indicate that femoral bone geometry is a predictor of whole bone strength (e.g. femoral neck strength), however, it is not known whether there is a relationship between bone structural and material properties. Bone geometry can be determined from parameters based on plane X-ray radiogrammetry which are used to evaluate femoral… CONTINUE READING
