Titel:
Automated 3D trabecular bone structure analysis of the proximal femur--prediction of biomechanical strength by CT and DXA. 
Abstract:
The standard diagnostic technique for assessing osteoporosis is dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) measuring bone mass parameters. In this study, a combination of DXA and trabecular structure parameters (acquired by computed tomography [CT]) most accurately predicted the biomechanical strength of the proximal femur and allowed for a better prediction than DXA alone.An automated 3D segmentation algorithm was applied to determine specific structure parameters of the trabecular bone in CT images of th...    »
