The results of bone density of the calcaneum measured with ultrasound in 107 menopaused women were compared with reference values provided by the manufacturer of the Walker Sonics machine and with the results of quantitative densitometry obtained with computed tomography of the calcaneum and lumbar vertebrae. The coefficient of correlation was 0.57 for the… CONTINUE READING
