osteoporosis and osteopenia
Subjects will be stratified based on DXA BMD T-scores.
- Measure cross-sectional and longitudinal differences in bone micro-architecture and strength changes in men with BMD T-scores ≤-2.0 and those with T-scores >-1.0. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]Trabecular bone micro-architecture as measured by trabecular number, trabecular BMD, and trabecular bone volume fraction (BV/TV). Cortical bone micro-architecture will be assessed by measuring cortical density & thickness and porosity.
- Change in Compressive biomechanical bone properties from Baseline to 12 months [ Time Frame: 12 months ]Calculate the change in compressive biomechanical properties using µ-finite element analysis
- Association between BMD, bone micro-architecture, compressive biomechanical properties and body composition at all timepoints [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12 months ]Association between BMD, bone micro-architecture, compressive biomechanical properties and body composition at all timepoints using DXA, HR-pQCT, microfinite element analysis.
