  • The use of the Norland-Cameron Bone Mineral Analyzer to measure the cross-sectional moment of inertia of the mineral in a long bone is described and data regarding the usefulness and precision of the method are presented
  • The BMA-measured CSMI was linearly correlated with the CSMI digitized from cross-sections of a series of human ulnas at the r = 0.92 and 0.95 level in the AP and ML directions, respectively
  • A linear correlation of r = 0.98 with the CSMI digitized from sections of human radii is demonstrated
