This results in a decrease in proximal femur strength and the increased occurrence of hip fractures despite low-energy injuries, such as lateral falls.[7] A growing number of studies have confirmed that hip bone density and geometry structure are two important determinants of proximal femoral bone strength.[8],[9],[10],[11],[12] Therefore, it is of great significance to study the geometric parameters of the hips of elderly patients with hip fractures.
