Volumetric bone mineral density of the tibia is not increased in subjects with radiographic knee osteoarthritis.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVES: Radiographic osteoarthritis (ROA) has previously been shown to be associated with an increase in areal bone mineral density (BMD) as assessed by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Here we have assessed volumetric bone density, size and strength by peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT) in a large population-based cohort study in which knee radiographs were available. METHODS: Two hundred and ninety-five men and 288 women from the MRC Hertfordshire Cohort Study und...
