  1. Femoral neck may be the better site to be evaluated when measuring BMD

    As far as I know, femoral neck is the better site to be analyzed when hip bone mineral density (BMD) must be studied. Other hip bone subsites may be not so informative. Thus, instead of total hip BMD the authors might have used BMD data coming from femoral neck to compare with lumbar spine BMD findings in these cases.
