Bone densitometry: assessing the effects of growth hormone treatment in adults.

Abstract

Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is the reference method for the measurement of bone mineral mass at different skeletal sites. It has been widely used in recent years to assess the effects of growth hormone (GH) treatment on bone metabolism. In normal individuals, bone mineral content (BMC) and density (BMD), as assessed using DXA, correlate with body… (More)
