Can bone quality be predicted accurately by Singh index in patients with rheumatoid arthritis?

Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate Singh index as a simple and inexpensive means of estimation of bone quality in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Singh index evaluation was made on digital pelvis radiographs in 50 consecutive patients by three observers. Bone mineral density T scores of the spine and left proximal femur were assessed using dual… (More)
