Peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT) provides biomechanical estimates of bone strength. Rural South Indian men have reduced biomechanical indices of bone strength compared to US Caucasian and Afro-Caribbean men. This suggests an underlying higher risk of osteoporotic fractures and greater future fracture burden among the rural South Indian men. INTRODUCTION Geographical and racial comparisons of bone mineral density (BMD) have largely focused on DXA measures of areal BMD. In… CONTINUE READING
