Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) is associated with systemic low bone mass. It could persist into adulthood and was shown to be an important prognostic factor for curve progression in AIS. Previous studies were confined to areal bone mineral density (aBMD) measured by Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) which was a two-dimensional measurement for a three-dimensional structure. This conventional measurement was inadequate to evaluate volumetric bone density and bone quality which are… CONTINUE READING
