The main purpose of this study was to determine whether calcaneal ultrasound parameters, measured in the mediolateral direction, reflect load-bearing capacities of human calcanei. Broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) and ultrasound velocity (UV) were measured in 20 cadaveric calcanei with a mean age of 74.1 (SD 8.8). Normalized BUA (nBUA) was determined(More)
OBJECTIVE Our previous study has shown that granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) gene/silica nanoparticles have a leukocytosis effect in normal dogs. Therefore, this study was conducted to determine whether treatment of canine GM-CSF gene/silica nanoparticles has preventive or therapeutic effects in dogs with leukopenia. MATERIALS AND(More)
Ultrasound velocity (UV) and broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) were studied in human and bovine bone with a wide range of bone mineral density (BMD). The BMD of 98 fresh specimens was measured by quantitative computed tomography: 42 cancellous specimens from women in the age group of 64±4 years; 51 bovine cancellous and 5 bovine cortical. BMD values(More)
OBJECTIVE: Ultrasound transmission velocity (UTV) and bone mineral density (BMD) were examined as possible predictors of the bending strength of osteoporotic long bones in ovariectomized rats treated with calcium-depleted diet. BACKGROUND: Changes in cancellous bone quality due to osteoporosis have been well documented, but only a few studies described(More)
