Low-energy Colles fractures are linked to low mineral density of distal radius in premenopausal women.
According to a study from People's Republic Of China, "Until now, it was unclear if low volumetric bone mineral density at the distal radius was also a risk factor for Colles fracture, especially in patients with low-energy trauma. In our study, we used peripheral quantitative computed tomography to measure volumetric bone mineral density of a nonfractured distal radius and dual-energy xray absorptiometry to measure areal bone mineral density at the spine and hip in patients with Colles fractures,...
