Definition:reduction in the mineral mass per unit volume of bone, the hard, rigid form of connective tissue constituting most of the skeleton of vertebrates and composed chiefly of calcium salts; this is expressed as the amount of mineral per cubic cm of bone (usually in mgHA/cm^3), with results generated from Quantitative computed tomography (QCT) and other tests
Synonyms:exact_synonym: decreased vBMD;   decreased volumetric bone density;   reduced BV/TV;   reduced bone volume fraction
