Table 3 The mean HU value of BMD groups

From: The correlation between the change of Hounsfield units value and Modic changes in the lumbar vertebral endplate

BMD group Osteoporosis group Osteopenia group Normal group
Mean T-score −2.70 ± 0.20 −1.46 ± 0.37 −0.38 ± 0.60
Mean HU value 401.46 ± 104.46** 545.70 ± 123.52** 659.86 ± 156.17**
  1. **The HU value of endplate was significant positively correlated with T-score (r = 0.467, p < 0.001), and the mean HU value of endplate was significantly different in three groups (p < 0.001)
