Abstract: Models which are based on non-invasive bone measurements may in the future be able to successfully identify individual subjects at an increased risk for hip fracture; thus, we designed a study to determine the usefulness of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and quantitative computed tomography (QCT) in predicting the local material properties of human proximal femoral cancellous bone. There has been some disagreement in the scientific literature regarding appropriate predictive models for local material p…
