Although bone mineral density measurements constitute one of the main clinical indicators of osteoporosis, we know that bone fragility risk is also related to deteriorations of osseous architecture. Medical imaging constitutes one means to appreciate in vivo bone screen, what is particularly important in the follow up of the osteoporosis. This paper presents a method of bone textural MRI and CT scan classification, based on the use of multifractal analysis by the WTMM-2d method, we propose the choice of three features to realize these images classification: the Hölder exponents average at the peaks of Legendre spectrums, the wavelet transform skeletons density by pixel, and variance of directions of gradients. The preliminary results of 40 images directly resulting from two medical imaging (MRI and CT scan), prove to be interesting since 90% of cases are well estimated, and two classes instantaneous clustering of the results (one healthy patient class and one osteoporotic patient class) quite separate.
