Quantitative ultrasound (QUS) is now being accepted as a tool in the assessment of bone status. Most QUS devices measure broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) and speed of sound (SOS). A newly introduced device, the Acoustic Osteo-Screener (AOS-100), measures both SOS and an attenuation related parameter called the transmission index (TI) and provides a derived parameter called osteo sono-assessment index (OSI). The purpose of this study was to examine the reproducibility of this new device… CONTINUE READING
