Density of Calcaneus bone

  1. Aug 28, 2013 #1
    Hi,

    I am really stuck and could really use help.
    Can someone please tell me the density of calcaneus bone. I can't seem to find it in any text book or journal articles.

    Please if you know let me know the journal or book you got it from.


    thank you so much

    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).
