The decrease of bone mineral density (BMD) is a multifactorial bone pathology, commonly referred to as osteoporosis. The subsequent decline of the bone's micro-structural characteristics renders the human skeletal system, and especially the hip, susceptible to fragility fractures. This study represents a systematic attempt to correlate BMD spectrums to the mechanical strength characteristics of the femoral neck and determine a fracture risk indicator based on non-invasive imaging techniques. The BMD of 30 patients' femurs was measured in vivo by Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). As these patients were subjected to total hip replacement, the mechanical strength properties of their femurs' were determined ex-vivo using uniaxial compression experiments. FEA simulations facilitated the correlation of the DXA measurements to the apparent fracture risk, indicating critical strain values during complex loading scenarios.
