Overview of bone mass.
Bone mass, or the quantity of bone tissue in the skeleton, can continue to expand into the late 20s. Peak bone mass refers to when bones have reached their maximal strength and density. Between the ages of 30 and menopause, women's overall bone mass tends to remain relatively constant. The amount of bone mineral in bone tissue is measured by bone density, often known as bone mineral density (BMD). Although clinically assessed by proxy according to optical density per square centimetre of bone surface upon imaging, the concept is of mineral mass per volume of bone (related to density in the physics sense).Author(s): Specker B
