This work aim to investigate the correlation between quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) and quantitative computed tomography (QCT) values, and the reproducibility of QSM value in human spine. Sixty-one subjects underwent QCT measurement for once and QSM measurement for twice in spine. The results showed that QSM value has strong correlation with QCT value, and has good reproducibility between two scans. These indicated that QSM has the potential to be an effective and stable measurement of BMD in clinical application.
