Prediction of incident hip fracture risk by femur geometry variables measured by hip structural analysis in the study of osteoporotic fractures.

Abstract:

The role of bone tissue's geometric distribution in hip fracture risk requires full evaluation in large population-based datasets. We tested whether section modulus, a geometric index of bending strength, predicted hip fracture better than BMD. Among 7474 women from the Study of Osteoporotic Fractures (SOF) with hip DXA scans at baseline, there were 635 incident hip fractures recorded over 13 yr. Hip structural analysis software was used to derive variables from the DXA scans at the narrow ne...
