|Condition or disease|
Recently, bisphosphonate-related atypical fracture of femur (AFF) is paid attention in clinicians. Almost all AFFs were occurred in thicker cortical thickness. But age-related change of femur is not well-known.
The main objective of this study is to reveal the age-related change of femur.

- Age-related change of femur [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ]
We investigate radiographic features in patients with osteopenia/opsteoporosis. We investigate bilateral femur radiographs concerning to cortical thickening. We analyze age-related change of femur.
To determine the age-related change of femur , statistical analyses are performed using Spearman correlation, paired t-test, chi-square test, Fisher's exact test and Mann-Whitney U test. Finally, we conclude the effects of age on femur.
