Trends in trabecular and cortical bone in the radius compared with whole body calcium balance in osteoporosis.

Abstract:

Mean linear attenuation coefficients for trabecular bone (T) in the distal radius and total absorption coefficients (TA) in the radial mid-shafts of 22 patients with crush fracture osteoporosis were measured serially for a year by using computed tomography. After approximately 6 months, each patient was admitted to a metabolic ward for an 18-day calcium balance study. The rate of change (trend) in trabecular bone (T) in the distal radius was a better predictor of calcium balance than the tren...
