Caption: Osteoporosis. Artwork of a female hip joint with osteoporosis. A close up of the head of the femur (the thigh bone, at right of image) and the pelvis (at upper left) is seen. The head of the femur forms a ball which fits securely into a cup-like cavity in the pelvis. Osteoporosis is seen as a spongy or grainy appearance of the bone at this joint. Such bone has a reduced density, is more brittle and prone to fracture. Osteoporosis usually affects the elderly and women after the menopause. It is usually caused at menopause by a reduction in the production of the oestrogen hormones by the ovaries. Treatments include hormone replacement therapy.
