La masse de la colonne vertébrale lombaire ainsi que la masse osseuse totale ont été déterminées chez 119 hommes et femmes âgés en bonne santé par la technique d'absorptiométrie bi-photonique. Le taux de perte du contenu minéral de la colonne vertébrale lombaire est le même chez l'homme âgé et chez la femme âgée, et n'est, sans doute, pas différent du taux accepté pour les jeunes adultes. Chez les femmes âgées, nous avons mesuré une perte annuelle significative de 24 g du contenu minéral osseux du squelette. Le plus important indice de prédiction de la masse osseuse est le poids de la personne. Des variables représentant la santé physique ou la force, seule la force du bras contribue à la variation de la masse osseuse, étant responsable de 4 pour cent de la variation dans la densité du minéral osseux de la colonne vertébrale lombaire de la femme.
