Trabecular architecture and vertebral fragility in osteoporosis.


Osteoporosis heightens vertebral fragility owing to the biomechanical effects of diminished bone structure and composition. These biomechanical effects are only partially explained by loss in bone mass, so additional factors that are independent of bone mass are also thought to play an important role in vertebral fragility. Recent advances in imaging… (More)
