Recent assessment of osteoporosis by monovoxel magnetic resonance spectroscopy states interesting feature about subregional femoral marrow fat composition. in this study , we evaluate differences in bone marrow fat of the proximal femurs of controls and patients with OP using a novel quantitative multi-parametric MRI approach that provides information about fat content, fatty acid composition, transverse relaxation and internal magnetic susceptibility.
