Can someone please tell me the density of calcaneus bone. I can't seem to find it in any textbook or journal articles.

Hi freq87. [Broken]

For a Korean population, there's a table here: http://synapse.koreamed.org/Synapse/Data/PDFData/0063JKMS/jkms-20-1011.pdf

hBMD seems to be around 0.4 - 0.6, for a particular Amazonian population, according to tables towards the end of this article: http://www.pinniped.net/madimenos2011a.pdf

The units? Mentioned in the first article.

The units for the density needs to be in g/cm^3. I can't seem to find it anywhere really worried.

thank you so much

These are all the results from dexa which calculates density in g/cm^2

I believe the gm/cm^3 figure is known as bone mineral apparent density (BMAD).
