Abstract
We describe a new method for the assessment of the bone mineral content of the peripheral skeleton. The method makes use of a single photon counting and imaging area detector, the Multi-Wire Proportional Chamber (MWPC). The application of this system to the measurement of the Bone Mineral Density (BMD) of calcaneum, using the MWPC as a dual photon absorptiometer with the isotopes pair 1251, 244,m, is discussed.
