But the DEXA is a 2-dimensional scan, so a smaller person will naturally have a lower "score" than a larger person, even if their real bone density (based on cubic volume) is the same.[/QUOTE]

Aha! I thought so. So....why is it that this is never taken into account and life-altering decisions are based on T-score alone? (I think I know the answer:mad:)
Having said that, are there any mathematical types out there who could figure out an "acceptable" range/score based on cubic volume?
