In trabecular bone the NMR linewidth is found to be governed by the magnetic field inhomogeneity arising from the difference in magnetic permeability between bone and marrow. T21 was measured in vivo in the distal femur by interferometry and localized spectroscopy. Both methods showed T21 to be inversely related to trabecular plate density. © 1991 Academic Press, Inc.
