The title question is investigated by comparing results
of a series of bone strength tests of lumbar vertebrae (L1 and L2) and right
wrists (distal radii) of nine cadavers. The paper describes the specimen preparation, the testing, and the analysis procedures. The results show that there
is a correlation between the strengths of the lumbar and wrist specimens for
the individual cadavers, suggesting that bone integrity is indeed systemic.
