OBJECTIVE In order to establish the normal patterns of forearm bone mineral density (BMD), BMD in the cortical and trabecular parts of the distal forearm were studied in a normal pediatric population. PATIENTS AND METHODS BMD was measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (HOLOGIC QDR-1000) in the distal third forearm of 246 normal children and(More)
