Femoral bone densitometry with DES treatment. Bone mineral density (BMD), bone mineral content (BMC), bone area (BA), and trabecular bone area (TBA) were measured in animals at death with a PIXImus Bone Densitometer System and analyzed by using a Windows 98-based software. Ratio of mean to control is plotted for each parameter plus the standard deviation. Significance was calculated in comparison to the vehicles by using ANOVA and is reported when P < 0.05 versus peanut oil controls.
