AIMS To assess calcaneal ultrasonometry in Charcot osteoarthropathy (CO) and to compare it with densitometry measured by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) and with bone remodelling markers. PATIENTS AND METHODS A group of 16 diabetic patients in the acute stage of CO with a mean age (+/- SD) of 51 +/- 13 years was compared with 26 sex- and age-matched control subjects. Both calcaneal quantitative ultrasound (QUS) parameter stiffness and bone mineral density (BMD) measured in lumbar… CONTINUE READING
