The advent of peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT), a three-dimensional measurement technique, has revealed that BMD loss differs at trabecular bone sites of the distal and proximal epiphyses [20] and that bone loss at diaphyseal sites occurs as a result of cortical wall thinning, not by decline of BMD [13,20].
Three-dimensional, high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography reveals significant differences in the way that trabecular bone microstructure changes with age in men and women.
A second presentation, titled "Accuracy and Precision of Quantitative Computed Tomography in Patients with Severe Emphysema," concludes that Quantitative Computed Tomography (QCT) measures of lung volumes have significantly less variation than PL (plethysmography), typically considered the best measure of lung volume in severe COPD.
