Prediction of Incident Hip Fracture with the Estimated Femoral Strength by Finite Element Analysis of DXA Scans in the Study of Osteoporotic Fractures

Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, Volume 29, Issue 12, pages 2594–2600. doi: 10.1002/jbmr.2291.

In conclusion, the estimated femoral strength from FE analysis of DXA scans is an independent predictor and performs at least as well as FN BMD in predicting incident hip fracture in postmenopausal women.
