Estimation of decalcification is a vital tool to discern bone health. Different techniques are used for its quantitative measurement, e.g. DEXA, QCT & QUS. All these techniques, although noninvasive, suffer from limitations such as radiation exposure and inaccurate values. Recently, fiber optic techniques are fast emerging for medical applications owing to their various attractive features like immunity to EMI/RFI, geometric versatility, chemical inertness, V Mishra, N Singh, D V Rai, U Tiwari, G C Poddar, S C Jain, S K Mondal, P Kapur
