Figure 5 Results from trabecular bone architecture texture lacunarity analysis of magnetic resonance images with version 3 of the method. Lacunarity of TBA from 30 subjects differing in age and physio-pathologic status is expressed by parameter β. Circles: age-related alteration of TBA in “healthy” subjects; Triangles: pathologic-related changes of TBA in osteoporotic BMD-based diagnosis subjects. Parameter β values directly correlate with fracture risk. TBA: Trabecular bone architecture; BMD: Bone mineral density.
