We have compared L-BMD and hip-BMD values (Hologic QDR1000) with those obtained by BUA, SOS and stiffness (S) o f the calcaneus (Achilles, Lunar Corp.) in 175 postmenopausal females. 49 suffered from osteoporosis with vertebral fractures (OP + F), 92 from osteopenia (OP-F) and 34 from glucoconicoid (GC)-induced OP. Long-term precision (CV) was determined in(More)
