Abstract: To analyze the importance of bone mineral for the strength of the distal diaphyseal femur, we studied 14 distal cadaver femora by quantitative computed tomography, (QCT) dual energy X-ray (DXA) absorptiometry and three-point bending. The femora were retrieved at autopsy from 10 male and 4 female donors aged median 74 yr (range 59-92 yr). Significant correlations were found between three bone mineral mass related parameters--QCT bone mass (density x slice area), DXA mineral density (BMD) and content (BMC)--and …
