Our study found that the differences of the parameters of mDIXON-Quant and IVIM-DWI [T2*, fat fraction (FF) and f values] among three groups with varying bone mineral density (normal, osteopenic and osteoporotic) were statistically significant. The correlations of the T2* and FF values with T-score were negative and the correlations of the D* and f values with T-score were positive. Our study implies that mDIXON-Quant and IVIM-DWI techniques were helpful to reflect the changes of vertebral marrow microenvironment of osteoporosis, which may provide valuable information for the assessment of the bone quality.
