Review of Literature Concerning BMC Determination
The subjective evaluation of a roentgenogram in order to measure the state of mineralization of the skeleton has been proven to be unreliable for a long time already (Stein, 1937). Photometry and conversion to an equivalent amount of reference material has been applied to many kinds of bone (Stein, 1937 and By water, 1948). Mainly because of the rather thin layer of soft tissue around them, the phalanges, radius and ulna have been studied (Mack et al., 1939).
