Illustration of osteoporosis, showing cancellous (trabecular) bone and cortical bone in blue in the background of the image. The cancellous bone shows weaker sparser spicules of bone in the disruption of normal bone architecture. Common fracture sites include the wrist, hip and spine which all have a high ratio of cancellous to cortical bone ratio. The main image overlay shows a femur fracture in colour that fades out to an x-ray.
