Profile of photon attenuation across idealized bone. The fractional attenuation on the left-hand side is measured experimentally, and the mass and μST attenuation coefficients μbone m m are known a priori at the two energies. We can simplify this by calculating the log attenuation factors (LA), where (LA)LE = log (I/I0 )LE and (LA)HE = log (I/I0 )HE ST bone − μbone (LA)LE = −μST m,LE · (ρL) m,LE · (ρL) ST bone − μbone (LA)HE = −μST m,HE · (ρL) m,HE · (ρL) (5) Bone Mineral Assessment of the Axial Skeleton 27 Fig.
This investigation, which was based on the Study of Osteoporotic Fractures, found that use of the femoral neck BMAD did not improve discrimination of hip fractures compared to femoral neck BMD alone. Bone Mineral Assessment of the Axial Skeleton 35 Dependence on Fat Distribution The bone mineral calculation of DXA assumes that human tissue is a two-component system consisting of bone and a soft tissue component of uniform composition. DXA systems resolve this problem by acquiring a soft tissue baseline in a region adjacent to the bone of interest, and using Eqs.
