Patients with OA have been found to have larger bone size but not higher volumetric BMD (vBMD), as measured by peripheral quantitative CT Another study that used CT to measure vBMD of the subchondral bone found higher vBMD among patients with knee OA, Dr.
For this extensive experiment, Chen and colleagues used a range of leading-edge technologies, such as peripheral quantitative CT (computed tomography) scans, which take actual measurements of bone interior and exterior, and real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction assays (real-time RT-PCR), which enable the scientists to analyze expression (turning on) of genes that play a pivotal role in bone formation.
The study used finite element analysis (FEA) of quantitative CT scans to measure changes in vertebral and proximal femoral strength.
Recent studies suggest that high-resolution MRI (hrMRI), multidetector CT, and high-resolution peripheral quantitative CT (hr-pQCT) each may be useful in assessing bone quality.
