[Estimation of bone mass of hemodialysis patients by digital radiologic radiogrammetry (DXR)].

Abstract

Bone mass (BMD) may be evaluated by digital X-ray radiogrammetry (DXR) which it is estimated from multiple cortical measures carried out on five regions of interest over a simple hand-forearm X-ray film. We included 168 HD patients (108 men and 60 women; 63 +/- 14 and 66 +/- 12 years old respectively--p < 0.05-) coming from seven HD units in Asturias. We… (More)
