Clinico-functional, quantitative and anthropological anatomy of the locomotor system



The research focuses on :

- Analysis with non-destructive methods of bone mineral density in ancient human skeletal remains, in relation to age, gender, living conditions and, therefore, paleopathological aspects of osteoporosis;

- Experimental study of the validity of the Trabecular Bone Score (TBS) as qualitative parameter of the microarchitecture of trabecular bone, applied to dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) that measure bone mineral density (BMD) in the diagnosis of osteoporosis;

- Use of vertebral morphometry (on DEXA images) and mandibular morphometry (the living) in the height estimation in forensic anthropology, based on mandibular parameters and DEXA images;

- Computerized evaluation of effectiveness and efficiency in the percussionistic bimanual performance in normal subjects as methodological approach for the analysis of musicians professional disease.
