Pediatric Bone Mineral Accrual Study
In a cooperative study with the Department of Medical Imaging, researchers are examining the effects of physical activity on bone density and skeletal integrity in growing children, elite athletes and the elderly. New initiatives involve analyses of the effects of weight bearing activity on bone mineralization and investigations of the relationship of loading history to bone composition.
