Title:
High-resolution imaging techniques for the assessment of osteoporosis. 
Abstract:
The importance of assessing the bone's microarchitectural make-up in addition to its mineral density in the context of osteoporosis has been emphasized in several publications. The high spatial resolution required to resolve the bone's microstructure in a clinically feasible scan time is challenging. At present, the best suited modalities meeting these requirements in vivo are high-resolution peripheral quantitative imaging (HR-pQCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Whereas HR-pQCT is limit...    »
