Quantitative analysis: Bone Mineral Density


Is it possible to measure BMD using slicer? I’ve been unsuccessful thus far.


If you segment the bone using Segment Editor module then you can use Segment Statistics module to compute average density values in each segmentes region. Do you know how to get bone mineral density value from Hounsfield unit? Is that linear relationship? If the relationship is non-linear then you probably have to convert to bone mineral density first and then compute statistics.
