Osteoporosis is a major public health problem. Menopause provokes a decrease in bone mineral density (BMD) that causes postmenopausal osteoporosis. This study aimed to compare different regions for BMD measurement in postmenopausal women, with regarding to the effect of age, weight and height. 313 osteoporotic menopaused women  were classified in 1 of 3 categories on the basis of their age (50-55, 56-60, and 61-65 years old), weight (under 51, 51-60, 61-70, 71-80, and more than 80 Kg), height (till 145, 146-150, 151-155, 156-160, and higher than 160 cm). BMD was evaluated based on T-score and percentage of BMD. Data are presented on those regions of the femur (right femoral, left femoral, right total neck, and left total) neck and lumbar (L1–L4) spine. In comparison between lumbar spine and femur, the lumbar spine region had more significant effects on BMD measurement in menopaused old women regarding to the age, weight and height division. Also, the neck region of the femur region was more important than the total neck region. In the neck region, neck left T-score was more efficient than neck right. These were stable in all age, weight, and height classifications after menopause. So, age, weight, and height of women older than 50 years that are menopaused, are not effecting on calcification of important BMD measurement regions.
