In peripheral quantitative computed tomography scans of the calf muscles, segmentation of muscles from subcutaneous fat is challenged by muscle fat infiltration. Threshold-based edge detection segmentation by manufacturer software fails when muscle boundaries are not smooth. This study compared the test-retest precision error for muscle-fat segmentation(More)
The objective of the study was to investigate the precision of standard outcomes obtained using peripheral quantitative computed tomography as well as apparent trabecular structure measures in adults with and without spinal cord injury (SCI). Twelve individuals with SCI, mean (standard deviation [SD]) 20 (13)yrs postinjury and mean (SD) age 44 (9)yrs, and(More)
STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional cohort study. To describe: (1) the prevalence of suboptimal 25-hydroxyvitamin D status (serum 25(OH)D <75 nmol l(-1)) and to identify correlates of vitamin D deficiency; (2) the prevalence of secondary hyperparathyroidism (serum intact parathyroid hormone (PTH)>7.0 pmol l(-1)); and (3) the relationships between serum PTH and(More)
