Chronic renal failure leads to a reduction of bone mineral density (BMD). Therefore, noninvasive methods to evaluate BMD are also used regularly in this patient population. In this study, we compared the results of two widely used methods, quantitative computed tomography (QCT) of the lumbar spine and dual x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) at different sites in 90 patients on chronic hemodialysis. Additionally, we also determined various clinical and biochemical data to assess their relationship to… CONTINUE READING
