The velocity (SOS), attenuation slope (BUA) and stiffness index in the os calcis were measured using the ‘Achilles’ ultrasound bone densitometer (Lunar, Madison, WI). We evaluated the basic attributes of this ultrasound bone densitometer, and showed the age-related changes in ultrasound values in normal Japanese women. The precision was measured in vivo on(More)
