Experimental validation of DXA-based finite element models for prediction of femoral strength

Osteoporotic fractures are a major clinical problem and current diagnostic tools have an accuracy of only 50%. The standard clinical assessment of Osteoporosis is based on an exam called dual energy X-rays absorptiometry (DXA) with which the local areal bone mineral density is measured at the hip. However, this investigation has been found to be, in some cases, a poor predictor...
