AIM To evaluate associations between prenatal risk factors, neonatal characteristics and bone development. METHODS Tibial speed of sound (SOS) of 317 neonates whose gestational ages ranged between 25 and 41 weeks and birth weight between 580 and 4,350 g was measured using quantitative ultrasound. RESULTS Bone SOS values correlated significantly with gestational age and birth weight. Small for gestational age (SGA) infants had higher bone SOS values than appropriate for gestational age (AGA… CONTINUE READING
