Use of DXA-based finite element analysis of the proximal femur in a longitudinal study of hip fracture.

Abstract

Bone mineral density (BMD) measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is used for clinical assessment of fracture risk; however, measurements that incorporate bone strength could improve predictive ability. The aim of this study was to determine whether bone strength derived from finite element (FE) analysis was associated with hip fracture risk in… (More)
