    Sammanfattning : Around 70,000 osteoporosis-related fractures occur in Sweden annually and approximately half of the women in western world will sustain a fragility fracture after the age of 50 years. Fracture preventive efforts require the identification of individuals who are at high risk. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Assessment of skeletal structure by MR relaxometry

    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; magnetic resonance imaging; bone and bones; osteoporosis;

    Sammanfattning : Introduction. More than 40 per cent of all women older than 50 years will suffer from a hip, wrist or vertebral fracture. Most of these fractures are related to bone fragility, osteoporosis. If the disease is diagnosed and treated at an early stage the risk of fracture can be decreased. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to evaluate bone mass and bone size in girls and boys from age 12 to 16, with special attention to physical activity. We also wanted to retrospectively evaluate the effect of exercise for the years preceding age 12. The findings were as follows. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Physical activity and regional bone mass

    Sammanfattning : This thesis considers the effect of physical activity on bone mass in weight-loaded and unloaded regions of the skeleton. Bone mass was measured by Dual X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) and by Quantitative Ultrasound (QUS). LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Diabetes Mellitus (DM) and Osteoporosis (OP) frequently co-exist with advanced age and imply large health challenges worldwide. The last decades there has been a growing interest regarding fracture risk in DM. Currently used screening methods (Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) and FRAX) underestimate fracture risk in diabetes patients. LÄS MER
