BackgroudPrimary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is associated with impaired bone quality and increased fracture risk. Reliable tools for the evaluation of bone quality parameters are not yet clinically available. Bone Strain Index (BSI) is a new metric for bone strength based on Finite Element Analysis from lumbar spine and femoral neck dual X-ray absorptiometry images.AimTo assess the lumbar spine (LS), femoral ...
