Wang Ling , Cheng Xiaoguang , Yu Aihong

Objective: We aim to investigate gender similarities and differences in femoral neck (FN) structure of elderly population by bone investigational tookit (BIT) of quantitative computed tomography (QCT).Material and methods: This cross-sectional study was part of China Action on Spine and Hip Status study, including 207 males aged 55–87 years and 400 females aged 55–96 years. QCT scans were performed in the hip for the subjects, and we used BIT s...

Predicting hip fracture type of elderly Asian patients with low-energy fall by volumetric BMD and femoral morphology from QCT

Su Yong-Bin , Cheng Xiao-Guang , Wang Ling , Ma Yi-Min

Introduction: Femoral neck fractures and trochanteric fractures are two major types of hip fractures. The BMD changing or hip strength analysis (HSA) of the two type fractures may be different. No research had focused on a large sample of Asian people. This study investigated the differences in BMD and morphologic features of the two type hip fractures of elderly Asian people from QCT.Methods: A total of 279 elderly Chinese patients with hip fractures du...
