English abstract:
While dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is considered the gold standard to evaluate fracture risk in vivo, in the present study, the quantitative computed tomography (QCT)-based finite element modeling has been found to provide a quantitative and significantly improved prediction of vertebral strength in vitro. This technique might be used in vivo considering however the much larger doses of radiation needed for QCT.
