  • Abstract
  • gt;¿0.80) than the volumetric BMD (AUC¿¿¿0.70). High discrimination capacity was achieved when the analysis was performed by bone type, zone of fracture and gender/sex (AUC of 0.91 for women, trabecular bone and trochanter area), and outcomes suggested that the trabecular bone is critical for fracture discrimination. In conclusion, 3D FE models derived from DXA scans might significantly improve the prediction of hip fracture risk; providing a new insight for clinicians to use FE simulations in clinical practice for osteoporosis management.
