Theoretical and experimental studies have been conducted to explore the possibilities of triple photon energy absorptiometry in the measurement of bone mineral content. The purpose of this technique is to correct the measured bone mineral density for fat and soft tissues. However, theoretical considerations lead us to doubt the precision and accuracy of such measurements. In a first approximation the absorption coefficient can be split into Compton and photoelectric energy-independent factors… CONTINUE READING
