Paper Abstract

Two in vivo methods for the determination of bone mineral content are compared. It is concluded that computed tomography represents the only accurate in vivo method capable of determining bone mineral content per volume of bone. In addition, it has the distinct advantage of being able to determine the bone mineral content of virtually any bone of the skeleton.
