Bone quality in terms of water distribution, porosity, and pore size distributions in cortical bone and relate these measures can be used to correlate bone mechanical properties. The objective of this paper is to demonstrate that non-destructive low-field NMR technique can be used to determine the mobile and the bound water distribution, and further determine the loosely and the tightly bound water in cortical bone in vitro.
