Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by loss of bone mineral density, caused by loss of the equilibrium between osteogenesis and adipogenesis. In this work T2, T1 and ADC were measured using a low-field NMR scanner, for the detection of bone marrow changes related to osteoporosis. Results showed that this method is capable of significantly classifying between bones of rats that were ovariectomized, ovariectomized and treated with parathyroid hormone, and sham-operated rats.
