Broadband ultrasonic attenuation (BUA) between 0.1 and 0.6 MHz and speed of sound (SOS) were measured on the os calcis in normal women (n = 40), and women who had mild osteoporosis (n = 36). Comparisons were made between the ultrasonic properties and bone mineral densities (BMD) obtained using photon absorptiometry on the lumbar spine, proximal femur and(More)
