Abstract The representativity of forearm in bone mineral content (BMC) measurements for estimation of total body calcium is investigated in this article. It is shown that there is a very high correlation between weight and calcium content of examined bone pieces, that there is a high correlation between weight of individual bones and BMC values, that the BMC values from various parts of the skeleton are reasonably well correlated, that the weight of individual bones is highly correlated to the weight of total skeleton, and that there is a reasonably high correlation (r=0.85) between BMC measurements in the distal part of the forearm and total weight of the skeleton. It is concluded that BMC measurements of the distal part of the forearm give an estimate of total body calcium.
