Caption: Osteoporosis. Artwork of vertical sections comparing the upper parts of a healthy femur (left) and one with reduced bone mass (right). The head of the femur (which articulates with the pelvis in the hip joint) is at left in each artwork. The loss of bone mass at right could be caused by a condition such as osteoporosis. In this condition, loss of calcium from the interior of bones leaves them brittle and prone to fracture. Broken hips due to falls occur in elderly women with this condition, which affects women more than men.
