The third edition of the Atlas of Osteoporosis is designed to be useful to a broad readership united in their interest in the disorder. The expert authors have encapsulated not only the well-established basics of osteoporosis but also new developments in the field in a format that makes extensive use of graphical displays of important data. Issues that are well known to be important to skeletal biology and osteoporosis (eg, nutrition, exercise, and growth) have been updated. Some chapters included in the first edition have been more extensively revised to reflect major developments. Several chapters have been added to highlight the emergence of new fields (genetics) or the expansion of others (bone densitometry and the laboratory evaluation of bone disorders). Table of contents The Nature of Osteoporosis - Osteoclasts, Osteoblasts, Osteocytes: The Cellular Organization of Bone - Bone Acquisition and Peak Bone Mass - Genetics of Osteoporosis - Biomechanics of Bone - Bone Quality - Epidemiology of Osteoporosis and Associated Fractures - Factors That Influence Adult Bone Mass - Glucocorticoids and Bone - Transplantation and Bone - Estrogen-Dependent Bone Loss and Osteoporosis - Osteoporosis in Men - Renal Bone Disease - Immobilization Osteoporosis - Radiology of Osteoporotic Fracture - Laboratory Assessment of Skeletal Status - Bone Densitometry in Osteoporosis Care - Role of Nonpharmacologic Approach to Fracture and Osteoporosis - Bisphosphonate Therapy for Osteoporosis - Bone Anabolic Agents - New Therapeutic Agents
