The availability of improved therapies for children with diseases affecting bone growth and/or metabolism has caused increased interest in bone mineral density (BMD) assessment. The purpose of this study was to determine normal values for phalangeal radiographic absorptiometry (RA) in a Caucasian pediatric population. Five hundred and seventy-two healthy(More)
To assess bone mineral density (BMD) in girls with Turner's syndrome before and during long-term treatment with GH, longitudinal measurements using phalangeal radiographic absorptiometry were performed in 68 girls with Turner's syndrome. These previously untreated girls, age 2–11 y, participating in a randomized, dose-response trial, were randomly assigned(More)
There is a need for a reliable bone assessment technique in children. In this study, we compare an existing technique used in children, radiographic absorptiometry (RA), with a relatively novel technique, quantitative tibial ultrasonometry (QUS). In a prospective cohort study, we enrolled 290 girls (mean age 12.7 years) and 273 boys (mean age 12.4 years).(More)
