Title:
Site-specific deterioration of trabecular bone architecture in men and women with advancing age. 
Abstract:
We tested the hypothesis that the age dependence of trabecular bone microstructure differs between men and women and is specific to skeletal site. Furthermore, we aimed to investigate the microstructural pattern of bone loss in aging. Microstructural properties of trabecular bone were measured in vitro in 75 men and 75 age-matched women (age, 52-99 yr) using microCT. Trabecular bone samples were scanned at a 26-microm isotropic resolution at seven anatomical sites (i.e., distal radius, T(10) and...    »
