Bone micro-architecture and determinants of strength in the radius and tibia: age-related changes in a population-based study of normal adults measured with high-resolution pQCT.

Abstract:

SUMMARY: We recruited a population-based sample of 58 males and 74 females aged 20-79 from a primary care medical practice to provide normative and descriptive data for high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT) parameters. Important effects of ageing and contrasts in the effects of sex on the micro-architecture and strength of upper and lower limb bones were revealed. INTRODUCTION: The advent of high-resolution pQCT scanners has permitted non-invasive assessment of s...
