Comments "Table 4.1 shows the volumes of the skeletons of Reference Male and Reference Female as derived from the reference mass data from Publication 89 (ICRP, 2002) and mass density data of ICRU Report 46 (ICRU, 1992)...The segmented cortical bone has the reference mass of Publication 89 (ICRP, 2002), and although no direct segmentation of the trabecular bone and active and inactive marrow in the spongiosa was possible at the given voxel resolution, the volume and composition of the spongiosa is such that all skeletal constituents (mineral bone, cartilage, active and inactive marrow, and miscellaneous tissues) are incorporated in the skeleton at their reference masses as given in Table 4.1."
