I am reading the literature of different projects that have used Bonej for data analysis and I came with the question of why some researchers report the second moment of area as a ratio between Imax/Imin? Is this the best way to describe the resistance to bending? I know many of them explain it as a descriptor of the shape of the cross section of the bone, however I wonder whether is better to report the IPM or Product moment of Inertia that BoneJ gives when we run slice geometry.
Also from Michael Doube papers I see he reports Imax and Imin separately, so I just wanted to get some advice of the best way to report second moment of area.
Thanks in advance!
