抄録: Advances in bone imaging techniques have provided tools for analyzing bone structure at the macro-, micro- and nano-level. Quantitative assessment of macrostructure can be achieved using dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and quantitative computed tomography (QCT), particularly volumetric quantitative CT (vQCT). In vivo quantitative techniques for assessing the microstructure of trabecular bone non-invasively and non-destructively include high-resolution CT (HR-CT) and high-resolution magnetic resonance (HR-MR). Compared with MR imaging, CT-based techniques have the advantage of directly visualizing the bone in the axial skeleton, with high spatial resolution, but the disadvantage of delivering a considerable radiation dose. Micro-CT (μCT), which provides a higher resolution of the microstructure and is principally applicable in vitro, has undergone technological advances such that it is now able to elucidate the physiological skeletal change mechanisms associated with aging and determine the effects of therapeutic intervention on the bone microstructure. In particular, synchrotron μCT (SR-CT) provides a more detailed view of trabecular structure at the nano-level. For the assessment of hip geometry, DXA-based hip structure analysis (HSA) and CT-based HSA have been developed. DXA-based HSA is a convenient tool for analyzing biomechanical properties and for assuming cross-sectional hip geometry based on two-dimensional (2D) data, whereas CT-based HSA provides these parameters three-dimensionally in robust relationship with biomechanical properties, at the cost of greater radiation exposure and the lengthy time required for the analytical procedure. Further progress in bone imaging technology is promising to bring new aspects of bone structure in relation to bone strength to light, and to establish a means for analyzing bone structural properties in the everyday clinical setting.
